Mango provides simple URL parameters to allow linking directly to a feature

Particularly useful for users who want to create linkages between external websites or databases that will open a specific map with a specific feature from a layer highlighted. If popups are enabled for the layer, the popup will also open.

Creating Inbound Feature Links

  1. Open the Layer Settings panel and edit the layer you wish to target
  2. Select the General tab
  3. Copy the Feature Link URL located at the bottom of the panel
  4. Target your desired feature by updating the values for field-name and field-value

Targeting features

The URL parameters follow a simple pattern to target unique features. To target a feature you must include a target field-name (Column), and a target field-value.

For example, to link to a unique property parcel in a parcel map, you could target the pin column, and use a unique GPIN or APN as the field-value

The field-name is a raw Column Name from the parcel dataset. eg. pin
The field-value is a unique Assessor’s Parcel Number you want to target. ie. 9895247728

If you’re not sure of the raw column name, you can find it by selecting the Formatting tab on the Layer Settings panel.

Here is an example URL using the above values:
https://mangomap.com/orange-county/maps/49891?field=pin&value=9895247728&layer=8eea8876-e11e-11e5-aad8-22000bb3a3a1&preview=true
