Detail view

The detail view for a data record appears either on the right side of the sidebar or on the full screen.

In the sidebar, the File Viewer appears in the upper area, which you can switch on and off with . This stetting automatically will be saved for your user profile. In addition to the metadata contained in the file, all versions of the uploaded file that easydb has created automatically, the versions created with the easydb tools and all files uploaded under “Versions” are displayed there. All versions can be viewed and downloaded here depending on the rights management.

Download in detail view

Select one or more sizes for each file class you want to download. If configured, select an entry for “Metadata profile” so that the configured information from easydb is written to the files. You can also use the original file names or enter your own file name. You can use the substitutions that are also available for the object types under File names for export and download.

By default, the download is performed as a ZIP file. Alternatively, the checkbox “ZIP file” can be deactivated and the files will be downloaded automatically one after the other. Please note that your browser may ask for your confirmation.

easydb supports the download of different file sizes (variants). By default the versions 250px (minimum length), 1.000px (maximum length), 2.000px (maximum length) are calculated. Custom variants can be configured by a system administrator using a .yml file.

With you can enlarge the full screen to the whole screen and with you close the full-screen view. In the upper left corner , the zommer is activated to show details enlarged.

NOTE: If the full-screen icon is gray (= disabled) in the full-screen view in the asset browser as well as in the asset detail, the user has not activated full-screen mode on his browser.


From the top of the Data View, you can share the record or the file that is associated with the record from the corresponding field. For more information on sharing and releasing via links, see the DeepLinks section.

File displayed in map

The detail view offers an option to display files in maps, if they contain geocoordinates in the metadata. Next to the button for showing and hiding the file preview is a button with a map. These buttons can be used to switch between the views. The preview of the file is shown by a small thumbnail on the included OpenStreetMap.

The geodata must be included in the file. The representation in maps does not apply if the geodata is only written into the metadata of the data set.

The display of geotags in maps is a plugin for easydb, which is delivered as standard (incl. YML-config). It can be activated via a checkbox in the Basic Configuration in the tab “Design”. It is also possible to individualize the display in maps for each object type by changing the settings in the masks.
