Setting up an object search

The “Find object” function allows you to quickly and easily determine the location of a specific object, such as a building, a plot, or another industry-model object that has geometry. The detected geometry forms the center point of a graphical creation or a zoom process of the “Go to” type.

There are three types of definitions for finding objects:

  • Simple search: In a simple search, you enter the known information about the position you are looking for (e.g., cluster)
  • Hierarchical search: A hierarchical search improves the search at each subsequent layer. At the end, you will receive the desired object (e.g., city > ZIP code > street > house number)
  • Plugin search: Retrieves pre-programmed object searches

Setting up a simple search

Create the feature object.

Setting up a hierarchical search

The hierarchical object search works on the same principle as subqueries in a tree of the Feature Explorer.

Navigate to Industry model > Find object.
