Queued Editing in GeoMedia Pro 6.1
Posted by jeffhobbs on July 23, 2007
For those that use GeoMedia Fusion, this will all be familiar. For those that have never used GeoMedia Fusion, it’s a fantastic tool designed in large part to clean and validate data. With Fusion, all of your validation issues are loaded into a queue. In the queue you’re able to go through the edits one at a time, and do many different things including:
- Make changes to the geometry
- Add comments to the anomaly
- Clean up the anomaly and add comments
- Ignore the anomaly
With GeoMedia Pro 6.1, Intergraph has introduced this functionality into the core product as opposed to it only being available in GeoMedia Fusion. This means that if you have GeoMedia Fusion on one machine, you can create a queue and save it into a warehouse. Then you can hand off this queue (warehouse) to other people and they can review the anomalies identified by GeoMedia Fusion without tying up a license of GeoMedia Fusion.
Furthermore, Intergraph has begun to use the queue for other things like the new search command. I will try and cover this command later this week, but in general, it gives you a way to search through a feature class looking for an attribute. It’s basically a query without having to write any SQL.
With time I can see Intergraph use the queue for more and more functionality. In fact, I could have sworn they were using it for both the Validate Geometry and Validate Connectivity commands. HOWEVER, after reviewing GeoMedia Pro 6.1 while writing this post, I didn’t see the queue used anywhere in the two commands.
