How can I identify parcels or blocks that I’ve painted in a scenario?
There are two options for identifying features that you've painted. First, you can set your scenario layer to show only the features that you’ve painted in any way (whether by type or by attribute). Select the Show only painted geometries option in the Layer Options menu for the Scenario Canvas. This option also filters the data table to include only painted features.
Option to view painted features only
You can also select painted or otherwise modified features by applying a filter using the "modification flag" columns, which contain "Yes" or "No" values depending on whether individual features have been painted or gridded. The modification flags include:
Modification flag
Description
Modified from Original
Indicates whether a feature has been painted or gridded in any way
Modified: Gridded
Indicates whether a feature has been created using a gridding operation
Modified: Type Paint
Indicates whether a feature has been painted to have a new Building or Place Type name. This can apply whether the feature has been painted by type or attribute, and independent of whether the base residential and employment values have been modified.
Modified: Employment Attributes
Indicates whether a feature has been painted by attribute to set employment values, including jobs and non-residential building area
Modified: Residential Attributes
Indicates whether a feature has been painted by attribute to set residential values, including dwelling units and residential building area
With your scenario canvas active, add a filter for the modification flag of your choice and select the "Yes" value. The selected features will be selected on the map, and the data table will be filtered to include only those features.
