This page covers how to configure and use the Custom Utility Cododing system in TransparentEarth. Using this feature you are able to assign a feature a Component Code for feature lookup. When you capture a feature you will also be able to assign each point in the feature a unique Control Code.

This article will cover how to add/edit/delete custom Component Codes and Control Codes for features, how to use Control Codes when creating new features, and how to view the Control Codes with the new pedigree dialogue.
