Using the Geography page to move a vertex to a specific x,y coordinate

  1. Select the line—or polygon— feature.

    The Feature Properties button is enabled once a feature is selected.

  2. Tap the Feature Properties button—or double-tap the feature—to open the Feature Properties dialog box.
  3. Tap the Geography tab to display the Geography page.

    The Geography page includes a table that lists each vertex and its x, y, and z coordinates. Vertex number 0 is the head. The last vertex in the table is the tail.


    Displaying the Geography page: The Geography page can be used to move a vertex to a specific x,y,z coordinate. The layer that you are editing may have an associated custom edit form. If it does, the Feature Properties dialog box will have additional tabs displayed to the left of the Attributes tab and left and right arrow buttons for navigating between the tabs. Tap the right arrow button until the Geography tab is displayed. The Geography tab is always the last tab displayed.

    The custom edit form may hide the Attributes or Geography pages of the Feature Properties dialog box. If this is the case, then you will need to use the Move To tool to move the vertex.


    Resizing the columns in the Geography page: You can resize the columns in the Geography page by tapping and dragging the vertical column separator.

  4. Double-tap the vertex coordinate that you want to change.

    The Vertex dialog box is displayed.


    Moving a vertex to the current GPS position: You can tap the GPS button on the Vertex dialog box to move the selected vertex to the current GPS position.

  5. Tap the GPS button to use the incoming GPS coordinates
  6. Tap OK.
  7. Tap OK.

    The vertex is moved to the specified coordinates, and the feature is reshaped.
