Assets are the essential data point that comprise a Project in OnePlace. An Asset is an instance of an Asset Type.

A single Asset represents a row in the table within a Project and often a Feature on the map. An Asset’s properties can be viewed when you select an Asset and open its form.

Depending upon the Asset Type, an Asset can represent the following record types:

Physical object

A physical object is typically mapped and intended to represent a physical concept such as a tree, sewer line, or utility pole.


Tasks are typically unmapped and track work completed. Often, this type of Asset is linked to a physical Asset on the map.


Annotations are mapped and convey additional information about a particular geographic area.

Construct containing a map layer or Project

When you import an aerial survey or plan into OnePlace, a construct is created to contain that imagery and overlay the data on the map. Likewise, a construct is used to contain and represent Projects within an Account.

Comment on an Asset

These are unmapped and related to an asset. These are hidden from the typical asset record lists (table view, list view). They contain no editable properties other than the comment text. This unique asset type appears in the Comments tab of an asset form rather than the Properties tab.


Assets have the following attributes:

  • id - The Asset ID.
  • createdAt - The date and time a User created the Asset.
  • updatedAt - The date and time a User last updated the Asset.
  • user - The User who created the Asset.
  • modifiedBy - The User who last modified the Asset.
  • project - The Project where this Asset is stored.
  • media - The list of media attached to this Asset.

Depending on the Asset Type, the Asset may contain the following attributes:

  • A Geometry Type such as a Polygon, Line, or Point. There will be no value here if the Asset is unmapped.
  • A set of properties that may be created, edited, or deleted by Users with the appropriate Role & Permissions
  • A Feature type and style indicating how the Asset is displayed on the map

How to Use Assets

Through the API

  • You can create, edit, and delete Assets with the right Role & Permissions.
  • You can search, filter, and order Assets based on the shared properties listed above (e.g., createDate, updatedDate, creator, etc.).
  • You can search, filter, and order Assets based on the values of their unique Asset Type properties.

Through the UI

You can do everything that you can do in the API with a few additions:

  • You can browse Assets within the table or on a map in a Project.
  • You can export Asset data.
  • You can edit and delete an entire batch of Asset data.
  • You can link Assets to other Assets.
