In your map, you can
add a drawing layer in Display
Manager that contains objects based on attribute data
associated with the object, for example, object data or data in
a linked external database. Select from objects in the current map,
or from objects in attached drawings.
For example, if you have
a linked database that lists pavement surfaces, you can select all
objects with a gravel pavement surface.
a data condition with other conditions to create specific queries. For
example, you could find all parcels that are zoned Residential and
are within 500 yards of a contaminated well.
- You cannot retrieve objects based on
constant block attributes.
- For Data queries,
the Database Link option tests
the link data stored on the object, not the data in the database
table. To retrieve objects based on data in the linked database
table, create a SQL condition.
- Because topology information is stored
in object data, use a data condition to search for the following
properties of topology objects: area, length, perimeter, direction,
direct resistance, and reverse resistance.
