The GeoNetWeaver Setup wizard walks you page by page through the process of setting up a geoproject.
Geoprojects are required to have a knowledge base.
In this context results are topics that you want to map. Dependency networks (goals) and equations (calcs) can be set up for mapping. Simple datalinks are mapped automatically if they influence a result topic. Dependency networks (goals) and equations (calcs) each have their own tabs. To include a topic as a result checkmark it. Hint: the context menu (right-click) has an action for selecting all topics in the list at once.
GeoNetWeaver has built-in mapping defaults that are satisfactory in most situations. However, you can customize how maps are rendered and statistics classified. To edit a topic's display characteristics select it and edit the characteristics to the right of the list:
The display caption is the name that will be shown for the topic. The default is the topic's name in the knowledge base.
The class count is the number of classes that will be used for the statistics for the topic. The default is 11.
The apply to all button will make all of the topics in the current list have the same class properties (class count, colors, class names, etc.) as the currently selected topic. This action works independently for dependency networks (goals) and equations (calcs).
Geoprojects are required to have at least one result.
This is where you tell GeoNetWeaver how to link to your data. The easiest method is to import an already built database configuration file that you created using NetWeaver Developer.
GeoNetWeaver uses one shapefile, the master shapefile, as its geometry source and to coordinate all other database tables. This shapefile's table must be set up as a master over all other tables in the geoproject (see Database Table Joins).
The startup options are the initial settings when the geoproject is opened. These settings can all be changed on-the-fly at runtime.
Area weighting is the default method for weighting statistics. The available weighting methods are:
If a topic is selected here its map will displayed automatically whenever the geoproject is first opened.
This is a list of settings for startup. Currently included:
The default geoproject name is the same as the knowledge base's name.
This is a list of tabs that can be hidden. All tabs that have content are visible by default.
GeoNetWeaver legends are defined using the MapWindow GIS application. http://mapwindow.org MapWindow GIS is installed with GeoNetWeaver. The legend is optional.
