As announced in the News of February 12, new mapping tools are available on Codata Explorer. They allow you:

  • to draw isochrones, circles and polygons of all types,

  • but also to search for any type of polygon: isochrones, circles, free contours, contours of Sites, municipalities, provinces, regions,

  • as well as to perform spatial operations on polygon additions, differences and intersections.

These different geometries, whether they are isochrones, free contours or official contours can be saved and thus retrieved. Besides, you can change their style.

Once drawn in the cartographic interface, just click on the geometry to open the options window that allows you to:

  • do some research,

  • edit the style of geometry,

  • display the surface of the geometry,

  • save the geometry,

  • erase the geometry from the map.

Save a geometry

  • Click on the “Save geometry” pictogram in the options window

  • Then give a name to your geometry and click on “Save”

Recovery of a saved geometry

Any saved geometry can be retrieved in several ways

  • Via your subscriber area

    By clicking on “My saved geometries”, you will have access to the list of these geometries.

    From this list, you will be able to rename the geometry, edit its style, delete it and retrieve it by displaying it on a map.

  • Via the search engines

    By loading it into the “Place(s)/Site(s)” criterion of the search engines.

  • Via the cartographic interface

    By clicking on the “Add a geometry” tab in the mapping tools

  • After choosing to load a geometry from the search engines or from the cartographic interface, a window containing all your saved geometries opens. Then you just have to choose the geometry you want to retrieve.

Modify the style of a geometry

After drawing the geometry, you can modify its color and opacity in several ways:

  • Via the cartographic interface, by clicking on the “Edit the style of the geometry” picto in the options window

  • Via the subscriber area, by clicking on the “Edit the style of the geometry” picto in the list of saved geometries.

  • After performing one of these two operations, an editing window (thanks to which you will be able to modify the style of your geometry) opens
