The following article will document the process for generating and editing custom .glc files in order to create custom data entry forms in iGIS.
You can import: a .glc with your shapefile; and export it from iGIS.
To start using customized forms, we recommend that you follow the following steps:
- Step 1. Download the below linked sample glc shapefile data and become familiar with the format by; investigating the file in a text editor, importing it into iGIS, editing the shapefile in iGIS.
- Step 2. Export your shapefile layer from iGIS to automatically create the *.glc.
- Step 3. Edit your iGIS created *.glc template file with a text editor to add lookup code lists. Use the sample *.glc file from step 1 as a syntax reference.
- Step 4. Import your shapefile into iGIS with your *.glc file, and begin editing your data with codelists.
We’ve produced a sample .glc file which is available here; FieldPoints3.zip
Use these samples to create your own customized forms. The sample data entry form is:
