- Monitoring multi-location properties
- Naming locations
- Multi-location reports
Multi-location properties are a collection of individual locations that share a common property name. Multi-location properties are ideal when your goal is to create one combined monitoring report that covers multiple sites.
Managing Multi-location Properties
Multi-location properties can be expanded on the Property Overview page to list all of their locations. For each location you can:
- Order imagery. To learn more, check out the Ordering Imagery article.
- Assign tags. To learn more, check out the Organizing Properties with Tags article.
- Add assignees. To learn more, check out the Adding Your Properties article.
- Add a reporting due date.
Monitoring Multi-location Properties
When you first select a multi-location property, you will see the entire property highlighted in blue.
From here, you can select any of the individual locations and the map will zoom to that location of the property, where all of the normal Lens tools will be available.
You can swap between different property locations by either panning and selecting them within the map or hovering over the thumbnail of the property on the bottom right hand of the screen and selecting a different location.
Hover the cursor over a location to see the property and location name displayed.
When providing a shapefile that includes a multi-location property, specify which attribute should be used to name the different locations in addition to the parent property name. If no location name is provided, then you will see italicized placeholder text in location name fields. These can then be manually renamed once the location is selected.
You have the option to generate a report for a single location, or for all locations within a property. If no location name is provided, the placeholder “Location” will be displayed in the Title and Property Overview pages.
The second page of the monitoring report will show the entire multi-location property. If you are creating a report for a single location, then the boundary of the relevant location will be highlighted.
