The Custom Search tool allows you to build targeted queries for attributes in a layer.

This is an ideal tool if your dataset have a small set of specific attributes that your customers need to find quickly.

For example, you have a map showing real estate sales data, and you want users to be able to quickly find all properties with a certain number of bathrooms above a set price.

Add the variables price and num_bath, set the type to greater than and at least respectively.

Users can now enter their criteria, hit search, and all features on the map that meet the criteria will be highlighted.

Configuring Advanced Search

To configure Advanced Search, first active the tool in your Toolbox. Next, select the layer you wish to query, and then select the attributes you want to allow users to search by.

Set critera descriptions for each enabled attribute, and select the method of filtering. If you wish to re-order the fields, simply drag and drop them to suit your desired order.

Usage notes

  • You can build a series of fields to query, or just a single query.
  • The queriable fields are not mandatory, so if only one field is queried, it will still return results.
  • To perform an AND search, set the “Attributes match” field to ALL, to perform an OR search, set the field to ANY.

Only one layer in a map can utilize Custom Search.
