Mobile GIS Viewer Upgrade

The eGIS group has upgraded the LA County Mobile GIS Viewer for HTML5 (demo version) and added new functions! Users are now able to:

  • Upload a file or photo as an attachment to a feature class
  • View an attachment
  • Download an attachment from a feature class

You can essentially take a photo with your mobile device and upload it to the feature class!

If you would like to test this functionality, here are the simple steps to attach a photo to an altered ‘Vacant Parcels’ layer in the County’s Mobile GIS Viewer (use Chrome or Firefox):

  1. Zoom to the visible scale of the ‘Vacant Parcels’ layer
  2. Go to the orange “I want to” menu > select Identify by point > and click on a vacant parcel
  3. In the Results pane, click on the Vacant Parcel result (example below)
    AttachmentHTML5
  4. Select ‘Attach a file or photo’

If the Vacant Parcel has an attachment and you would like to view the attachment, follow steps 1-3 above >scroll all the way down of the results pane to the ‘Attachments’ section > and click on the attachment:

AttachmentHTML5_2

 

You can then right-click on the file or photo and save it to your computer.
