In Intterra, there might be occasions when it makes sense to copy an existing feature to the map rather than draw it. For example, you may need to copy:
- An IRWIN incident, an Air Intel Tool hot spot, or a latitude/longitude PIN to a new Intterra incident.
- An Air Intel Tool heat perimeter to an Intterra perimeter.
- A feature that you added to your own session using the Add Layer Tool to Intterra for all to see.
- An evacuation route, water source, or a planned line from a wildfire preplan layer to an Intterra incident.
New! Users can now also convert a polygon to a line feature using Convert Geometry to Line using the same steps below.
- Wildfire editors can convert a fire perimeter polygon to a new fire line edge, containment line, or other line feature.
- Structure preplan editors can convert a building footprint to a new structural wall feature.
- Select the proper workspace. You need to be in a workspace where you can edit the layer you need to copy to. If the layer you want to copy from is not available in that workspace, check out How do I add a layer from another workspace?
- Click on Manage Layers.
- Make sure the layer you want to copy from is on.
- Make sure the layer you want to copy to is on.
- Click on the feature to copy the map.
- Select the feature you want to copy in the Info Panel.
- Select copy geometry (within the Geometry tab in the Info Panel).
New - when a polygon feature is selected
- Select the layer you want to copy to.
Enter Information and Save
- Make any adjustments to the drawing, if needed.
- Associate the feature, if available. Look for blue shaded boxes to link an incident feature to the incident name, select an address for structure assessments to autofill other fields, link a preplan feature to a preplan, etc.
- Enter information that you want to save with the feature. Be sure to look in other tabs.
- Press Save Feature, if available, otherwise Close. When no change has been made to the record, Save Changes does not appear and default fill-ins can be saved by selecting Close. This can serve as another reminder to select (or type in to establish) the best incident name.
