Compiling Features
« on: 12 April 2018, 12:37:27 »
Once a list of un-georeferenced features has been prepared in a Features.csv file (eg from The Journal or transcripts), then the next stages of the process are:
  • Ensure the Features.csv file is in UTF8 format with no BOM
    • for Notepad++ use the menu Encoding - click on Convert to UTF-8 (without BOM), save and reload to check it is still encoded as UTF-8
  • Add the All Features layer
  • Upload and compile
  • Georeference the Features
(If not already done) Add the All Features layer to the LayerDefs_Feature.csv file:
  • Whereas other processes may be done more than once, this one is done just once
  • Where the fieldnames are
    layertype;category;title;csvname;candownload;url;attribution;mapkey;minx;miny;maxx;maxy;shorttext;description;fl_Ncols;flhead_col1;layerdescription
  • the All Features layer entry is
    Vector;Local;All Features;AllFeatures;TRUE;AllFeatures.geojson;#PDC#;;;;;;;;1;;These are all the features as we have recorded them.
Upload and compile:
  • In M4OPS for your OPS (first Dev then, when tested, Production):
  • Click on the Upload Tab
  • Click on Choose Files, Browse to the folder where your csv files are located
  • If you have updated the LayerDefs_Feature.csv file:
    • Select the LayerDefs_Feature.csv file and click on Open
    • Click on Upload, and (if necessary) provide the password
    • When the Uploaded OK message appears click on OK
  • As you have updated the Features.csv file:
    • Select the Features.csv file and click on Open
    • Click on Upload, and (if necessary) provide the password
    • When the Uploaded OK message appears click on OK
  • Click on Compile
  • When the (detailed) compilation results message appears click on OK or Cancel
  • (As after every Compile) Clear your browser cache, and reload M4OPS

See Georeferencing Features for the next stage.
