The address tool is designed to:

  • find a place (city, house, etc.) on map ;
  • detect the address of a place.

Choose Tools ⇒ Address on the menu to make use of the tool.

The address information can be received form different provider (depending on maps activated and their support): WebGIS, Google, Yandex, etc. (see type of map).

To start searching, input the first letters of the name of the city/town into the City field. After typing three or more characters, in the Results field a list of places starting with these letters will appear. If the place you are looking for is the first on the list, push <Enter>. In other case, select the necessary item in the list and click on it. The similar actions can be performed in the Street field. After selecting the street, a list of houses located there becomes available. Choose one, and the map will be centered at this house.

The found place will be marked with a blinking red pointer. Information (coordinates and address if available) will be displayed below. If it gets into any geofences, their list will be given, too. Geofences are written in colors assigned to them.

The search can be stopped on city or street if it is enough for you.

The Back button is used to go back to the street search (if you are already selecting a house) or to the city search (if you are in the street field).

If you have moved the map or zoomed it, you can reset changes pushing the Show button.

To start a new search, press New.

Address Detection

To know address of a point on the map, just double-click on it. See the address and the coordinates in the popup window. If it gets into any geofences, they will be listed below.

It is possible also to detect address by coordinates. Input latitude and longitude in grades and fractions (they should be separated by a dot) and push the Resolve button. The map will be centered at this point.

Save as Geofence

The place where the red marker blinks, can be saved as a geofence in the shape of a circle with 100 m radius. The detected address will be used as the name for this geofence.
