Classification via Direct Link

It is strongly recommended to read first the brief overview about Classification.

Setup Manually

  1. Select the attribute and choose direct classification.


  2. Choose the graphic parameter which must be affected by the above selected attribute.


  3. Flag to view the parameter in the Legend Display.
    When displaying the parameter in the legend display, a label can be added for each available attribute value.
    Type manually or use the auto label button to create labels based on the attribute values.



Setup Dataset and Legend via New Symbol Dataset

An easy way to apply direct classification is by using Dynamic Symbols!
The create dataset function “New Symbols Dataset” generates a point dataset including the required attributes with direct classification on symbol name, size and and orientation.

Read all documentation on how the create a New symbols Dataset here: Create New Symbols Dataset



Create Objects in a Symbol dataset

To create new symbols (point objects) on the map :

  1. flag the record indicator in the dataset list of the required dataset
  2. and use the New Symbol function to create new objects on the map.

    More information: Place Symbol Window



Examples

In a direct classification, the attribute values are exactly the same as the parameter values!

Symbol.Name
Symbol.Size
Symbol.FillColor
Symbol.Orientation

Notes

  • When a color parameter is used, the color is represented as a value like saturation.red.green.blue. Each part can be defined from 0 to 255.
    More information: Direct classification on Color-codes
  • The orientation is set in degrees and goes counter-clockwise.
