The Query and Filter tools are very useful when it comes to identifying specific map features in your AssetAlly Application. The tools appear to be similar, but one tool may be more useful than the other depending on the situation.
Using the filter tool is a great way to sort anything in your GIS application that requires routine maintenance (i.e. valves, trees). A filter presents a focused view of a feature layer in a map. By limiting the visibility of features in a layer, you can reveal what's important. To begin, we click on the filter button on our toolbar.
