Add a location type

When you create a location definition to specify a relationship between MicroStrategy attribute forms and an ArcGIS location type, Location Architect gives you the option of choosing one of the default location types such as US State or Address, or specifying a dynamic map service or feature service from ArcGIS as a location type. For example, if your organization has its own boundaries (water districts, sales districts, or zoning boundaries), you can map your data using those locations instead of the default location types.

  1. Follow steps 1 through 3 of Create location definitions.
  2. Press Add location type.
  3. In the search box, type one or more keywords and press Enter to search for the service you want to use as a location type. You can press My organization to narrow your results.
  4. Find the service you want and press Select.
  5. Choose the layer you want to use to look up locations and press Next.
  6. Select the columns containing the attributes you want to use for looking up locations. Press Next.
  7. In the Name box, type a name for your location type. Optionally, type a description in the Description box.
  8. Press Add.

    Your location type is added to the list.

  9. Choose your new location type from the list and press Next.
  10. Select the columns containing the location information and press Next.
  11. Select the format of the column data you're adding. If you want a different name for the layer, type a new name in the Layer name box.
  12. Press Create location definition.

    The location definition is listed in the Location definitions table, and a details page for the new location definition is displayed.
