Fix a location

The Esri Maps Location field comes with several options for fixing and updating the location of an individual item. The Esri Maps Location field includes options for creating a new marker on the map, moving the existing marker, selecting from similar address matches, and typing an address in the search box.

The Esri Maps Location field shows the map location of the selected item and is automatically added to a list item when you run the Esri Maps Locate. You can also manually add the Esri Maps Location field to a list item and edit the geometry. Once the Esri Maps Location field has been added to a list item, you can fix or update the location of existing markers, or add a new marker if you are manually adding the Esri Maps Location field and have not run the Esri Maps Locate workflow.

Change a location using the map

  1. Browse to your list, select the applicable item, and click Edit.
    The item's fields display, including the Esri Maps Location field.
    List item in edit mode
  2. Click Insert a pin or Move the point to the desired location to place the marker in a new location.
  3. Once you place the marker in the new location, you are prompted to update the address to the new location.

    If you click Yes, the map and location information in your item update with the new address information. If you click No, the marker stays in the location where placed, but the location information in your item is not changed. An example of where it may be useful to click No is if you want to leave the address as is but change the location of the marker to represent a specific location, such as a spot on a university campus or hospital.

    This step does not apply to items created with workflows that use place-name lookups (for example, World Cities) and custom location types. The pin will update, but a prompt will not appear to update the address information, and the information will remain unchanged.

  1. Click Save to save your changes and close the editing window, or click Cancel to close the window without saving changes.

Change a location by editing address or coordinate data

    The following steps do not apply to items created with workflows that use place-name lookups (for example, World Cities) and custom location types.
  1. Begin by editing the applicable list item.
  2. Edit the values in one or more fields that contain information about an item's location. This can be the item's address information, coordinates, or other.
  3. Click Update Location in the Esri Maps Location field.
    field
  4. Click Save to save the new location.

View similar address matches

If the addresses found by the geocoding service are not correct, you can access similar matches and choose from any of those to update your item's location.

  1. Click View similar address matches on the Esri Maps Location field.
    View similar address matches
  2. In the list of addresses that appears at the bottom of the map, select the appropriate address and click Apply. The Esri Maps Location field and the item's location data updates.

Add the Esri Maps Location field manually

You can manually add the Esri Maps Location field to a list item instead of running the Locate workflow. When manually adding the Esri Maps Location field, you are prompted to specify fields for the Esri Maps Location field to use, and these can be an X, Y coordinate pair or a Shape field. Both point and polygon shapes are currently supported in the Shape field, with support for lines coming at a later release.

  1. Begin with a list that has an X, Y coordinate pair or a Shape field (this can be a point or a polygon).
  2. Add the Esri Maps Location field to the list.
  3. Edit the applicable list item as in the previous steps.
  4. Click Insert a pin or Move the point to desired location to place the marker in a new location. The values in the X, Y coordinate fields or Shape fields automatically update. Note that address fields other than the X, Y coordinate fields or Shape field are not updated.
