  4. Click the Save button to save your changes.

Edit point geometries on the map

Point layers can be either simple point or multi-points layers. For simple point layer, there is one point per feature. Multi-point layers will have more than one point per feature.

  1. Select a point feature on the map to open the feature info box.
  2. Click the Edit Geometry button. This will open the Drawing Geometry dialog at the top of the screen. Your selected feature will be highlighted in blue.
  3. Click and drag the feature to a new location.
  4. Click the Accept Feature button to save the new feature location. Click the Cancel button to cancel your edit.

Edit point geometry manually

Coordinates for point geometries can also be edited manually. This is useful when you have the coordinates from another source (such as a report or agency).

  1. Select a point feature on the map to open the feature info box.
  2. Click the Edit Attributes button. The Edit Attributes window will open.
  3. Click the Location field to edit the point’s coordinates. Add the new location.
  4. Click the Save button to save your changes.

Edit line or polygon geometries

Any existing feature in a layer can be modified, if you have permission to edit the layer. A layer that has been saved to GeoGig will maintain a history of all of the edits to ensure the provenance of the data.

  1. Select a feature on the map to be edited. This will open the feature info box.
  2. Click the Edit Geometry button. The Editing Geometry dialog will open.
  3. Mouse over the geometry to highlight the vertex to edit. Click and drag the vertex to a new location. Repeat to edit any additional vertices.
