Spatial searching

By default, UNLVSpatial is enabled in the Clean White template set. The spatial search form appears in the section called “Search view”, consisting of a map with three radio buttons beneath it in addition to the standard collection checkboxes that appear in the other search forms. When the "Search" button is clicked, the system will search for maps based on the map viewport, and present the results in a custom results view. This is not the built-in the section called “Results view” -- notice the different URI -- even though it uses the standard results view template. Since it is not technically results view, certain features like Chapter 14, Custom queries and results (CQR) will not work with it. A spatial search is incompatible with a standard metadata search and both cannot be conducted simultaneously.


Only objects whose spatial data has been imported will appear in the results.
