Adding Attributes to Map Features

When you add an icon, polygon, shape or line to a map you can view the metadata for that feature and you can add attributes as well.

Metadata refers to information about features or text such as who created it and when and when it was changed etc.  To access this metadata select the feature or text then double click on it, this will open a Feature information box.
