1.13. How to edit data

Web GIS allows to edit attributes and add descriptions and attachments (including photos) of separate features in Vector layers and PostGIS layers.

You can do it in 2 ways: 1) using edit form in Feature table or 2) using edit form in Web map web client (if the relevant layer is added to Web map).

1.13.1. Edit using Feature table

  1. Open the Properties page of Vector layer or PostGIS layer;
  2. Select Vector layer ‣ Feature table on the right side of Web GIS admin console;
  3. In the opened dialog window select a feature you want to edit (if necessary search it by its attributes using Search bar) and press Edit button;
  4. In the opened form edit feature attributes values in Attributes tab, add description and attachments in Description and Attachments tabs;
  5. Press Save button. If attributes, description and attachments are saved successfully you’ll be able to view them by selecting the feature in Feature table and pressing Open button.

1.13.2. Edit using Web map

  1. Open Web map and switch on the visibility of the relevant layer;
  2. Find a feature on the Web map (if necessary search it by its attributes using Search bar in the Toolbar or in Feature table which can be opened via Layer dropdown menu in the upper left corner of Web map web client. You can quickly find the selected feature on Web map using Go to button in Feature table);
  3. Click on the feature with identify tool. In the opened dialog window with feature properties press Edit button;
  4. In the opened form edit feature attributes values in Attributes tab, add description and attachments in Description and Attachments tabs;
  5. Press Save button. If attributes, description and attachments are saved successfully you’ll be able to view them on Web map by clicking on the feature with identify tool, or by selecting the feature in Feature table and pressing Open button.

Note

Updated attributes in PostGIS layers are saved directly to external PostGIS database. Updated attributes in Vector layers, as well as descriptions and attachments in Vector layers and PostGIS layers are saved to your Web GIS.

Note

You can also edit geometries and attributes of Vector layers features with desktop app NextGIS QGIS.
