Sketch editor

View on GitHub
Sample viewer app

Use the Sketch Editor to edit or sketch a new point, line, or polygon geometry on to a map.

Use case

A field worker could annotate features of interest on a map (via the GUI) such as location of dwellings (marked as points), geological features (polylines), or areas of glaciation (polygons).

How to use the sample

Choose which geometry type to sketch from one of the available buttons along the bottom of the screen. Choose from points, multipoints, polylines, polygons, freehand polylines, and freehand polygons.

Use the buttons at the top of the screen to: undo or redo change made to the sketch whilst in sketch mode, and to save the sketch to the graphics overlay.

How it works

  1. Create a SketchEditor and pass it to the MapView with mapView.setSketchEditor(sketchEditor).
  2. Use SketchEditor.start(SketchCreationMode) to start sketching.
  3. If editing an existing graphic's geometry, use SketchEditor.start(graphic.getGeometry).
  4. Check to see if undo and redo are possible during a sketch session using sketchEditor.canUndo() and sketchEditor.canRedo(). If it's possible, use sketchEditor.undo() and sketchEditor.redo().
  5. Check if sketch is valid using sketchEditor.isSketchValid(), then allow the sketch to be saved to a GraphicsOverlay.
  6. Get the geometry of the sketch using sketchEditor.getGeometry(), and create a new Graphic from that geometry. Add the graphic to the graphics overlay.
  7. To exit the sketch editor, use sketchEditor.stop().
