The Locate pane provides a quick way to search for an address and display the corresponding location on a map.
- To use any locators in addition to the World Geocoding Service or geocoding services from your portal connection, add them to your project.
To view the currently available locators in your project, navigate to the Project pane. Opened by default, this pane shares space with the Locate pane, so you may need to select it using the tab at the bottom of the pane.
The Locators drop-down folder contains a list of currently available locators. Click it to expand the contents.
- Open the Locate pane by clicking the Locate button on the Map tab at the top of your project. The pane opens over the Project pane.
- In the Search text box in the Locate pane, type the address, place name, or x,y coordinates you want to find in a single-line format.
As you type, suggestions appear in a drop-down menu based on your input. The suggestions are generated by locators based on the settings you choose on the Settings tab of the Locate pane. You can press Enter to search based on the text you enter in the search box, or you can click one of the suggestions to perform a search based on that text.
- If the address matches, the address candidates display in list format under the locator that returned them, and they display as labelled points on your map. You can right-click any candidate to reveal the Zoom to option and the Pan to option that allow you to perform their respective actions on the selected candidate so you can examine it more effectively.
