Edit display properties
A common issue with type and property names from data schemas is that they are hard to unserstand. They tend to be cryptic abbreviations, especially when they come form a Shapefile, or they are defined using a foreign language. To provide well-usable view services despite this, you can define display properties which are then used for legens and GetFeatureInfo popups.
To set display properties, follow these steps as a logged in theme manager or organisation superuser:
- Go to «Themes»
- Pick the theme you’d like to change the configuration for
- Go to «Feature Types»
- Click on the properties of the feature type for which you’d like to edit the display properties
- In the table that appears, first decide which fields you want to be visible in a popup by setting the «Display» property to «Yes», and then pick an «Alias» for those that should be visible.
- Save your configuration by clicking on the «Save» button at the end of the table.
