A Geo Link is a subdefinition for a Geo Plugin. It provides a specific filter and operation to perform on data found in the source of the Geo Plugin. A Geo Plugin can have multiple Geo Links, each of which can hold a definition for which features to import and how to interpret them.

Geo Links are used for importing vector data.

A Geo Link provides the following linkage options:

Type definition
The data matching the Geo Link filter will be imported as Items with the selected definition. For example, when the Geo Plugin is for Buildings, features matched by the Geo Link are added to the Project with that specified Function.
Matching Attributes
A list of Attributes which a feature should have in order to be imported. Each attribute can be configured to merely be present, or to need to match one of a list of values. This allows for filtering on a specific group of features only.
Mapped Attributes
A list of Attributes which are renamed on import. If the specified Attribute is present in a feature in the data, the resulting Item will have an Attribute with the specified mapped name with the same value.
