Search filters

They serve to narrow down the user’s search results based on their needs. To use the filters, the user must have previously chosen a Search Context from the seven existing in the Search Engine, located in the tool panel.

The tools available in urbiGIS filter by:

  • Search by Name: the search engine filters based on the text entered and shows the corresponding results. Access the Search by Name article to learn how it works.

  • Search by click on the map: the search engine filters based on a click on the map and shows the applicable results in that place. Access the article  Search by clicking on the map to learn how it works.

  • Search by geometry: the search engine filters based on a polygon drawn on the map and shows the applicable results within the geometry. Access the article Search by drawing on the map to learn how it works.

  • Advanced search:the search engine filters based on a selection of fields, showing the results that meet the chosen requirements. Access the  Advanced Search article to learn how it works.

The 7 Search Contexts (Territories, Maps, Geo-reports, Locations, Instruments, Data Sets and Annotations) have the four filtering tools enabled. The variables that can be chosen in the Advanced Search are adapted to the characteristics of each Context.
