The video of the ninth module is now available, in which we will show how to work with hyperlinks in gvSIG.
This tool allows us to associate images, text files, pdf files, folders, web pages … to the geometries of our vector layer. For that we must have one or more fields in the attribute table of that shapefile in which we will have the file or folder paths or the web page URL.
When we create the field for the paths it’s important to indicate a large size (for example 200 characters), since if we link to a very long path and the field length is smaller, that path will be cut and you will not find the linked element.
This functionality will be very useful to show reviews, pictures, reports … of our geographical entities.
The cartography to follow this video can be downloaded from this link.
