Welcome to Optioneer! This article is an introduction to Optioneer that will allow you to access Optioneer, navigate the interface and carry out basic operations.

This article covers the following:

  • Accessing Optioneer

  • Optioneer Environment

  • Map Functionality

  • Basic Operations

  • Tips for General Use

Accessing Optioneer

In order to access Optioneer, you must verify your email address. This is done via an email that will be sent to you by support@continuum.industries. Please check your spam folder if you cannot find this email. The link in the email expires 24 hours after it is sent, so it's important to verify your email as soon as possible. If it times out, get in touch with us at CI.

Optioneer Environment

Now you are in Optioneer, you will want to familiarise yourself with the interface.

Watch this short video which introduces you to the Optioneer environment.

There are five windows within Optioneer, which roughly resemble a general routeing workflow.

Map Functionality

Map view is the core part of Optioneer. You will be in map view when are you in the Data, Setup or Analyze windows. From the map you can:

  • navigate the map,

  • open the Map Controls panel and

    • manage GIS layers,

    • toggle visibilities of objects (points, lines, polygons). This will make all objects of that type visible. See the 'Basic Operations' section of this article for how to toggle the visibility of individual objects.

    • change basemap,

    • change to 3D view.

  • open a ‘what is here’ pop-up menu by clicking anywhere on the map.

The Case Library can also be accessed. It contains your Optioneer outputs. In the case library, you can:

  • toggle visibility of results on and off,

  • delete results and options,

  • rate options to provide feedback to CI team,

  • attach labels on results

    • NB. Results can be labelled so that it’s easier to organise them in a way that is intuitive for you and other users. Labels are stored across the project so that you can use common labels with your collaborators. You create a new label by typing into the label fields next to the result status.
