Locating a Feature
In this exercise you will locate a vineyard that needs to be fertilized. You will locate the vineyard and then update its attribute information, noting that it has been fertilized. Once that task is complete you will select other sectors of land neighboring the fertilized vineyard to determine if any of those also need to be fertilized.
In this exercise, you will use the Find tool to locate the vineyard you are looking for. Your work order tells you that there is only one vineyard in the suburb of Elmore so it should be quite easy to locate.
- Tap the Find button on the Browse toolbar
- Tap the Layer drop-down list on the Query page and tap LAND USE.
- Tap the Field drop-down list and tap USE_CODE. The USE_CODE field identifies
the type of land for the area (e.g., vine, scrub, and so on).
- Use the Soft Input Panel to type the land use type “vine” in the Value box.
- Tap the Results tab to execute the search and to view the results.
- Scroll to view the attributes of the feature. Tap the matched feature.
- Tap the Go To button.
- ArcPad zooms to the Vine parcel of land. The selected plot is highlighted and
set as the current navigation destination. The vineyard is also labeled using
the value of the field that was searched on—in this case, the use code of the
plot of land.
- Your vineyard is clearly labeled, and with your ArcPad map you can go to the vineyard and fertilize it.
