You are here: Strings > GOIDGenerator


Calculates a GOID (Geographic Object IDentifier) for each incoming feature, and adds it as a new attribute.

The GOID is a unique 128-bit number that incorporates the position of a feature with other numbers. The result is a unique value that may be used to distinguish features from each other. The 128-bit GOID is composed of 32 hex digits in an ASCII string. The first 16 characters correspond to the position, the next 10 to the time, the next 4 to the sequence number.
