I'll play devil's advocate on this one :)
Is there anyone out there that want's to join me in asking for feature parity when it comes to the more 'advanced' editing tools in the GVH?
I've heard from our local distributor that there are no plans for adding the Cut, ReShape, and Union tools to the GVH.
This leaves us in a major bind as we have mapping officers in our Incident Control Centres relying on these tools to help with the vitally important task of mapping Fire and Flood incidents. This lack of parity is stopping us transitioning to the GVH - it's as simple as that. This regression is not acceptable from these mapper's point of view and we are taking flack on this already. We have literally hundreds of mapping staff across multiple Emergency Service agencies that use these tools to their advantage in what can be trying and difficult circumstances in the ICC's...
As for the current UX, it is nothing like the GVS. I'm still trying to fathom why I need to hit the identify tool to bring up the Edit option, and then hit the option panel (?) to get to the edit geometry, or delete options. Why aren't these simple buttons on the toolbar - by default??
Is anyone else in the same boat here? It would seem that there is based on some of the traffic I've noticed on this forum - an example here (https://support.geocortex.com/essentialsGSCForum?sub-nav=forum&main-nav=essentials&#!/feedtype=SINGLE_QUESTION_SEARCH_RESULT&id=90660000000TS1qAAG)
I'm looking for some support in getting LG to think about adding these tools back in, or some explanation as to why they are not there, nor planned (I've sat through the recent conference with no mention of these tools coming).
I've been a massive supporter and fan of GE over the years, but this decision has me perplexed, and leaves our organisation in state of flux. We have external consultants currently looking at the feasibility of creating these tools, and this would need to be in the old JS API, and this again raises more issues for us in 12-18months!
Any support or ideas appreciated, and yes we have consulted our local distributor here in Australia, and have asked LG direct, for their opinions on this matter also......
