5 Viewing Properties on a Map (Release 9.2 Update)

This chapter contains the following topics:

Note:

Before using the Property Location Map, you should consider whether you need to use a secure connection.

See "Security for Custom Map Viewers" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Security Administration Guide..

5.1 Understanding the Property Location Map Program

You can use the Property Location Map program (P15002X) to view the location of your properties along with additional information about the properties, such as the rented and available space. You can also view the latitude and longitude of a location, determine the distance between points on the map, and access commonly used applications for properties in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system.

To locate a property, you complete filtering fields. After you select a property, the following information appears at the bottom of the left pane:

  • Image

    An image appears in the left pane only if a default media object is associated with the address book record of the property.

  • Property address

  • Building type

Options on the property location map enable you to perform other actions, such as measuring the distance between two points on the map.

5.2.4 Locating Properties on the Map

To locate a property, enter values in one or more of the following filter fields, and then click Show Properties:

  • Company

  • Building Type

  • Building

  • Project Number

Figure 5-1 Property Location Map form

Description of Figure 5-1 follows
Description of ''Figure 5-1 Property Location Map form''

Use the most specific search that you can use to limit the number of properties returned in the search results. For example, if you need to locate only one property and know the building number, enter the building number to have the search return only that property. If you search by a very general filter, such as company, the program will find and map all properties for a company, which could result in a very large set of properties to view.

You can also specify default values for the search fields in the processing options. See Section 5.2.3.2, "Defaults".

5.2.4.1 Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Pan

Zoom and pan controls enable you to move to a more specific or less specific view of the map. You can view the map from a very broad view, such as the global map, to a very specific view, such as a location on a street.

To enable the zoom control panel, select Zoom Controls from the View menu. You can use the Pan buttons on the panel to move the map in a specific direction, such as North or Northeast. You can also move the button on the vertical slider to change to a more or less specific view. Additionally, the Zoom in and Zoom out icons enable you to change the map to a more or less specific view.

By default, the map opens with the Pan control enabled. When in Pan mode, you can double-click the map to zoom in. You can also click the map and drag the view to another portion on the map. If you switch from Pan mode to use another control, you must select the Pan icon to re-enable the zoom in action when you double-click the map.

5.2.5 Viewing Additional Information on the Map

Note:

After you select an icon other than the Pan (hand) icon, you must select the Pan icon again to stop using the previously selected icon. For example, if you select the Distance icon, select the Pan icon to stop using the Distance icon.

In addition to locating properties on the map, you can view the following information:

  • Rented and usable space

    You can view the rented and usable space for a property if you select the property on the map while the legend for the property is enabled. You enable the legend by selecting Legend from the View list or selecting the Legend icon. The legend displays the space available or rented in the unit of measure in which you set up the building information, such as square feet or meters. You must have the rented and usable space set up using the REN (rented) and USE (usable) codes for the area type in the building setup.

  • Distance between two points on the map, or the accumulated distance between multiple points on the map

    Select the Distance icon and then click the map to specify the points whose distance you want to measure. Each time that you click the map, the application puts a marker on the map, draws a line between the points, measures the distance between the points, and displays the distance at the bottom of the map. If you click multiple locations on the map, the application accumulates the distance measured between each successive point. Select the Pan (hand) icon to remove the markers and lines from the map and to stop using the Distance icon.

  • Latitude and longitude

    Select Information Panel from the View list, or select the Information icon to show the latitude and longitude at the bottom of the screen. The system displays the latitude and longitude for the location as you move your cursor. The latitude is shown as the Y factor and the longitude is shown as the X factor. The system continues to show the latitude and longitude until you deselect Information Panel in the View list or you click the Information icon again.

    Note:

    You must run the Initial Load of Address Book Geo Code UBE (R01120) or the system does not display the latitude and longitude.

    See Using Address Book Geocoding in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Address Book Implementation Guide.

  • Area within boundaries that you specify on the map

    Select an area using the Rectangular Selection, Circular Selection, and Polygon Selection icons, or select the Area icon and then click the map to form the area you want to measure. The area appears on the bottom left of the map in miles or kilometers, depending on your setup.

5.2.6 Accessing Property Management Programs from the Map

After you locate the property whose information you want to view, you can right-click the building marker on the map to display a list of the programs that you can access from the map. Processing options determine which version of the programs the system launches when you select an option from the list. The options in the list are:

  • Leases

    This option opens the Lease Information (P1501) program.

  • Log Detail Critical Dates

    This option opens the Critical Date Inquiry (P15204) program.

  • Rent Roll

    This option opens the Tenant Rent Roll Inquiry (P154210) program.

  • Expiring Leases

    This option opens the Expiring Leases Inquiry program (P154030).

  • Building Information

    This option opens the Property/Building Information program (P154210).

  • Log Details

    This option opens the Log Details form in the Property/Building Information program.

  • Category Codes

    This option opens the Business Unit Category Codes form in the Property/Building Information program.

  • Floor Information

    This option opens the Work with Floor Information form in the Property/Building Information program.

  • Building Attributes

    This option opens the Building Attributes form in the Property/Building Information program.

  • Address Book

    This option opens the Address Book Revisions program (P01012).

5.3 Using the Property Location Map in a CaféOne Layout

The Property Location Map program is an ADF application. When you use an ADF application in a CaféOne layout, you must set up the parameters that the calling EnterpriseOne application in the layout uses to interact with the ADF application.

This list describes the parameters available for the Property Location Map program:

  • Company

    Use this parameter to map to the company of the buildings that you want to see.

  • Business Unit Type

    Use this parameter to map to the building type.

  • Business Unit

    Use this parameter to map to the building.

  • Business Unit - Subsequent

    Use this parameter to map to the project number.

If you select a value for any parameter, the left pane of the Property Location Map is collapsed when you access the layout. You can expand the pane and change the value in the search fields.

For each of the parameters, you can select the is mapped to operation and select a value from the calling EnterpriseOne application. Or, you can select remains as if you do not want to specify a value.

The following image shows the Edit mode of a CaféOne layout that includes the Property Location Map, with the Property/Building Information program as the connected EnterpriseOne application. In the image, the Company and Business Unit - Subsequent parameters are specified.
