Survey 123 geotrace symbology

Good afternoon,


I have created a Survey123 proformas from Survey123 Connect XLSForm. Part of the form collects bat flight path information. What I would like is the symbology of the layer to display as an arrow to display the direction of travel.


How to I symbolise this?


Kind regards,

  • Use arrow symbology for the sketch geometry while the user is interactively entering the bat flight in the geotrace question: Not possible. You can style the line color and width , but cannot add an arrow at the end. 
  • In the geotrace map, use arrows to display all bat flights previously entered: This is possible if you configure your geotrace question to use a custom web map. You will need to add to your web map the bat flights and use arrows for symbology.

Hi Ismael,


Thanks for the reply.


So there is no way to symbolise the direction of travel.


Seems the answer is that I will need a separate question to show direction of travel.
