Table

Use a Table representation

The table representation is a very powerful tool. Learn how to use it!
In Geovistory, all information are linked via their "features". For example a 'Person', let's name him Georg, is linked with a his birth place, Berlin, via the feature "birth". Because when adding the information on the birth of Georg we also indicated that his birth place was Berlin. We can use this characteristic of Geovistory to visualize data in table format.
In order to create a table, you have to chose what entity should be at the core of it. For example "persons". You can add several directly.
Hint: Hit on "run" - you will now have a list with all entities of the selected class!
But how do you transform this list in a table? You must select the information associated to your entity that you want to appear in your list.
For this, you can choose between two kind of information to be registred : entity attributes (e.g. ID of the entities) or path to related entities.
The option "path to related entities" is very important! iI allows you to select the information related to your entity. For example, for a person, his or her date of birth, place of origin, etc.
To find the information in a path, you must always start with a Class and end with a Class. Between this, you have to select the properties which will allow access to another class.
Give a name to your column, add as many colums as necessary or increase the number of tables.
Run to vizualize the resulte, it's an easy way to check and fill in the information. You can always open an entity from the table by clicking on it. This will open a new table.
Save your analysis; give your table a name and a description. It will be stored in your Geovistroy analysis library.
