Attribute Types Settings

Attribute settings: Containers

Unlike all other attribute types, containers do not represent data values. Rather their sole function is to organize attributes into groups for display. In a multi-attribute value set (for example an address with separate attributes for street number, city, state, country and postal code), there will be at least one container serving as the “root” (or top) of the attribute hierarchy. Other containers may serve to further group items in the multi-attribute set into sub-groups displayed on separate lines of a form.

, (comma)

Text

readonlyTemplate

Layout used when a container value is in read-only mode. If this template is set, existing values are always displayed in read-only mode until you click to edit. This can be used to preserve screen space for large containers.

Element code tags prefixed with the ^ character, used to represent the value in the template. For example: ^ca_objects.my_notes. Each of these templates is evaluated relative to a specific value instance for this container, so other display template elements like <unit>, <ifdef> or <more> might not work exactly as expected. More general notes on display templates are here: Display_Templates

Attribute settings: Geocode

The Geocode attribute type represents one or more coordinates (latitude/longitude pairs) indicating the location of an item (collection object, geographic place, storage location or whatever else you want to place on a map).

Coordinates can be entered as decimal latitude/longitude pairs (ex. 40.321,-74.55) or in degrees-minutes-seconds format (ex. 40 23’ 10N, 74 30’ 5W). Multiple latitude/longitude coordinates should be separated with semicolons (“;”). UTM format coordinates is also supported.

Non-coordinate entries are converted to coordinates using the Google Maps Geocoding service, which works well for most full and partial addresses worldwide. To unambiguously distinguish coordinate data from address data to be geocoded, it is strongly suggested that coordinate lists be enclosed in square brackets (ex. [40.321,-74.55; 41.321,-74.55;41.321,-75.55;40.321,-75.55;40.321,-74.55].

Google Maps integration

The Google Maps mapping service is used to produce maps displaying your coordinates. The Geocode attribute used to support either version 2 or 3 of the Google Maps API, selectable via the google_api directive in the global.conf file. As of August 2010, only the v3 API is supported since v2 is now officially deprecated by Google. Any old v2 configuration in your installation (assuming you installed prior to August 2010) will be ignored.

Adding rectified overlays

You can add layers that include rectified maps by creating serve-able tiles using a tool such as MapWarper and the Google/OSM URL it provides as an export option. The OSM URL will be in the format http://mapwarper.net/maps/tile/0001/z/x/y.png. You will need to change the x, y and z placeholders in ${x}, ${y} and ${z} respectively. The example OSM URL for CollectiveAccess would be http://mapwarper.net/maps/tile/3671/${z}/${x}/${y}.png. This URL should be entered into the “Tile Server URL” option for the metadata element. You should also provide a layer name describing the content of the map. If you wish to allow users to toggle the layer on and off check the “Show layer switcher controls” checkbox.
