Common functionality

Copy

Object duplication (cloning, copying) is another available means of creating a full copy of an object. Copied objects also occupy Storage space. To select this function it is necessary to use the corresponding option in the context menu. Upon selection, a full copy of an object is created with “copy_1_” added to the file name. This way, the file is successfully checked for duplicates and immediately becomes available without the need for renaming. By default, the copy is created in the same directory as the copied file.

Selection

‘Selection’ is a set of features for selecting one or more files. The context menu, drag-n-drop, and hotkeys can be applied to the selected objects.

There are several ways to select objects:

With a mouse click (one file is selected, you must hold down the CTRL key to further select additional files).

With Lasso (when you click and hold and drag the rectangle – all objects within the rectangle will be selected when the click is released).

With hotkeys (can be used with at least one selected object. Key combinations are described in the Hotkeys section).

Sort

The ‘Sort’ function is used to change the order of listed files by criteria (Name, Date, Type, Size). There is also a reverse option for each type of criteria.

To select this function, click on the criterion near the ‘Sort by’ title.

If you want to reverse the listing, click on the arrow icon (up is reverse sorting, down is standard sorting).

Upon selection, object order immediately changes in accordance with the chosen criteria. For files and folders, sorting is done individually. However, it is not possible to sort files by one criterion and folders by another.

Dialog windows

‘Dialog windows’ allow the user to confirm irreversible actions.

The function is brought up automatically when particular actions are carried out on objects.

Here, you either confirm or cancel the action. The text corresponds to the type of action you initiate.

Context menu

The context menu is selected by right-clicking on a file or folder, or by clicking on “…” when selecting a file or folder to display all possible actions for the file or folder. This simplifies access to features and to the ‘Open with’ option that is available only for files recognized by the Storage that can be further used in EOS Processing and Land Viewer applications.

Save as AOI

The ‘Save as AOI’ option is available in the context menu and allows you to save the area of interest. You can save AOI from any georeferenced file.

My AOI

The ‘My AOI’ section allows storage of the user’s areas of interest. If to choose one AOI, it is possible to view it on the background, do the search by this AOI and save it in Storage as a file, rename the selected AOI, download it to local disk as a file in .kml or .geojson format, and remove it. When adding a multi-area and then hovering over the specific area, it will be highlighted; and there is an option to turn off the view of this area.

Band mapping

The ‘Band Mapping’ function is a bitmap of raster image channels. It is selected with a click on the corresponding option in the context menu. Upon selecting this function, a dialog window with band mapping will appear.

Open with…

The ‘Open with’ option is available only for files recognized by Storage. To use these files in EOS Processing and Land Viewer applications, click on the corresponding option in the context menu.
