Add Bands

Bands can be added using the following data sources: 

Add a Band Using ArcGIS Layer Data

  1. In the main workspace, or in the View panel, click Add New Band.

    • If you added the band from the main workspace, the Band Options panel opens automatically.

    • If you added the band from the View panel, click on the band name to open the Band Options panel.

  2. Configure band options as described below:

Add a Band Using Spreadsheet Data

When adding a band using spreadsheet data, you should first make sure that the data in the spreadsheet is readable by Geocortex Inline. Follow the instructions in Prepare the Data to ensure your spreadsheet is uploaded correctly. Once you've uploaded your spreadsheet, you can Add Spreadsheet Data as a band.

Prepare the Data

To ensure your spreadsheet data is correctly read by Geocortex Inline, follow the guidelines below to configure your spreadsheet into a readable format:

Add Spreadsheet Data

  1. In the View, click the Add New Band button.

  2. Provide a Band Name.

  3. In the Data Source dropdown, select Spreadsheet.

  4. Click Choose File and then select the spreadsheet you would like to upload.

  5. Click Next.

    If Inline is unable to parse the data in the spreadsheet, please review the guidance in Prepare the Data.

  6. Select a Chart Type.

  7. Choose to configure the Measures from one of the following:

    1. Coordinates

      1. Toggle on Calculate Measures from Coordinates.

      2. Configure the X Field and Y Field using headers from the spreadsheet.

      3. Configure the other fields if you have the appropriate data. Otherwise leave blank.

    2. Measure field or surrogate measure field.

      1. Set the Measure Field to one of the headings from your spreadsheet. If you are using a surrogate measure field, set the Measure Field to the surrogate heading.

      2. Configure the other fields if you have the appropriate data. Otherwise leave blank.

  8. Click Done.

       

Add a Band Using Workflow Data

Band data can be collected from a workflow added to Geocortex Inline. Workflows added to Inline must return feature set type data, and cannot include any Display Form activities. Workflows that are intended to be used in the Add New Band wizard must be added to Geocortex Inline first before they can be added as a band in a View.

Add the Workflow to Inline

Step 1: Add the Workflow to Inline

  1. In Geocortex Inline, open the View configuration.

  2. Under the Band section, click User Data Band Options.

  3. Under the Workflow section, select Add Workflow.

  4. In the Import dialog, find and select the workflow you wish to add, and then click Open.

    Your workflow appears in the list of workflows.

  5. Edit the display name of the workflow if necessary.

    The display name is used to list the workflow in the Add New Band wizard.

Step 2: Pass Parameters into a workflow

When a workflow is invoked via a band, certain context parameters are automatically passed into it. In addition, you can optionally pass any number of custom parameters into the target workflow. By default, the following context-based parameters are passed into the target workflow:

These parameters are available as workflow inputs in the target workflow via the context property.

  1. To add any input parameters click the Add Input Parameters button and then configure the parameters.

    Parameters should be specified using the following syntax:

Copy
Custom Parameter Syntax
{
 "customParam1": "<value 1>",
 "customParam2": "<value 2>"
}

 

Custom parameters are available as workflow inputs in the target workflow via the inputArgs property.

To use parameters in a target workflow, access them using the Get Workflow Inputs Workflow activity. For details, see Get Workflow Inputs Activity.

Add a Workflow Data as a Band

Once you have added one or more workflows to Geocortex Inline, they can be added as bands to a View.

To add workflow data as a band:

  1. In the View, select the Add New Band button.

  2. In the Add New Band dialog, provide a Band Name.

  3. In the Data Source dropdown list, select one of the workflows in the list.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Select a Chart Type.

  6. Choose to configure the Measures from one of the following:

    1. Coordinates

      1. Toggle on Calculate Measures from Coordinates.

      2. Configure the X Field and Y Field using fields from the workflow.

      3. Configure the other fields if you have the appropriate data. Otherwise leave blank.

    2. Measure field or surrogate measure field.

      1. Set the Measure Field to one of the fields from your workflow. If you are using a surrogate measure field, set the Measure Field to the surrogate field.

      2. Configure the other fields if you have the appropriate data. Otherwise leave blank.

  7. Click Done.
