GIS Module

How to use the GIS Module in Telogers Enterprise 5

GIS Module Features Overview

These are some of the features found in the GIS module for Telogers Enterprise. More detailed information is available in the video above. In order to access the necessary data, the GIS module connects to an ESRI GIS server and a Telogers Enterprise server.

  • The data can be presented in the Telog Enterprise Client or a web browser.
  • Clicking on Open Map provides a selection of previously saved map views.
  • Selecting Map Content displays available GIS layers. If your organization has an ESRI GIS server then your own pipe and site layers can be viewed rather than the default baseline.
  • Clicking and dragging the mouse while holding the shift key allows you to zoom into an area of interest.
  • Opening the Attribute table shows key attributes for all the elements of the highlighted layer.
  • By using the selection tool, selected sites become highlighted within the table. This helps you focus in on attributes that are pertinent to those sites.
  • Clicking on the previously selected tool icons toggles those icons off.
  • The site tree on the left is dynamically linked to the Telog sites located on the map. Right clicking on a group and selecting zoom to group does exactly that, showing just the map extent that contains those selected sites.

  • The site property icon gives you more details about the Telog site such as latitude and longitude and user defined fields.
  • The Open Telog Report icon enables you to display a detailed view of the time history data for that site. Highlighted tabular data are linked to the cursor’s graphical position.
  • Clicking Show Site Data displays the latest readings from the selected sites. As new data are received from the Enterprise server, those data are automatically updated on the map. You can also replay historical data to obtain a spatial perspective of past events.
  • Right click a group and select View Timeline on Map. Here you can choose the measurement types and sites for the time series replay. With the time series slider you may narrow the time window shown in the site thumbnail viewers.
  • Click and drag the time slider endpoints to the desired window size, then position the slider to better review the data of interest. By clicking the Timeline Play button the system will automatically play the Time Series data. This is a great tool for replaying storms or any other significant events.
