If any images are tied to the defects mapped, these images can be easily viewed using the ArcGIS hyperlink tool as well.
Another tool that is used heavily by many of our users is Subsets, which has been around in our GIS interfaces since ArcView 3.0. It allows you to define a loosely associated collection of features. Subsets can be created from a selection of features in the map, a selection of features on a work order, or features selected based on a user defined filter. For 7.20 we provided more flexibility with Subsets by allowing you to edit them in the map to remove features. This video shows how it works:
In this post we’ve described just a couple of the many enhancements added to our ArcGIS 10 ArcMap extension. Let us know if you’re interested in learning more. How can we further improve our desktop and web-based GIS tools to help you in your organization?
