Link multiple mapped assets

Within your map, you have the ability to tie two or more assets together. Linking assets enables you to keep track of items that are connected geographically or share related information. The major benefit of linking assets is how quickly you can view specific information and navigate to items that are a part of a single work task. Here's how you link assets in your map:

 

1. Locate an asset you want to link another asset to. Either find the asset's location on the map or search for it in Table View.

4. This opens a window that allows you to link any mapped item or any other file (see related article Attach a file to an asset). Locate the asset you want to link to the current asset in the initial tab "Library." You can link one or more assets by clicking the check box.

Now, you can view all linked assets (and other files) in the "Links" tab. In that tab, you can quickly center the linked assets on the map and view additional information. If you run into any issues or have any questions, please reach out to us at support@unearthlabs.com.
