Query Tool

You can use the Query tool in the Search tab to build a search query on a large list of layers displayable in Tengraph.

Open the Query tool. Here you can select the layer you wish to query using the Data Source drop down menu. Click the drop down arrow and navigate to the map layer you wish to query/search.

In this example, I've chosen the CALM Purchased Former Leases layer.

When you select a layer, it will choose a random attribute to default as the target attribute of your query, in this case "END DATE" is the default attribute. Click the drop down arrow next to END DATE and change the selection to FORMATTED LAND ID.

This is the attribute where you can search for a land ID such as CPL 46 as shown in the screenshots below.

Once you've selected your attribute for the query, choose the operator that is the closest representation of the query you're building. For example, here we want to query the CALM Purchased Former Leases layer and identify where the Formatted Land ID, contains the string CPL 46. This query will also work if you use = as the operator, making the query Formatted Land ID = CPL 46.

In the final query builder box, enter the Formatted Land ID (CPL 46) for the lease that you are searching for. Enter the % symbol, or just click in the empty box, a list of existing options will be shown as a drop down. This gives an indication of the format that is required to run a successful query. When you type in CPL 46 it should filter the drop down to match what you have typed into the box.

Click on Search, the results will display in the left panel.

If you want to change your search criteria, reopen the query builder by clicking on the Query tab located beneath the Results.
