    Fractions are treated in the same way as numerals, described above. However, there are a number of specific complexities that should be addressed. If the user wishes to link to specific signs for fractions, they must provide one of the accepted logographic readings AND they must provide the multiplier number before the logographic reading. For example, acceptable examples are 1⅔DIŠ (for 0.667) and 1ŠUŠANA (for 0.333). The sole exception to the use of the multiplier is for decomposed fractions. Specifically, forms like 2/3DIŠ cannot be written with a multiplier such as 12/3DIŠ.
    NOTE: simply typing a fraction like ½ or 1/2 will not link to a sign reading, just like typing a number like 3 or 60 will not link to a sign reading.
    NOTE: compound numbers should be transliterated as compound logograms, separated by dots, not plus signs. See the example below.
    Here are some examples illustrating how the text import interface will interpret numbers:

    10+10+10 30
    4U or 1NIMIN
    10+10+10+10 40
    A form like 4U will create a hierarchy of four U signs under a parent epigraphic unit.

    Compound numbers are written as compound logograms, i.e. with units joined by a dot.

    By Sandra Schloen, June 2016Andrew Wright, February 2018
    Map Navigation View is one of three modes provided by OCHRE for navigating among the collection of OCHRE items in a project.The other views are Hierarchy view (the default) and List view which are available by toggling the tree-icon button on the main OCHRE menu bar.
    To enter Map View, click the globe-icon button.
    ...
    To rotate the map, click and drag the mouse cursor inside the circle containing the directional arrows. To return to north, click the ‘N’ button. To zoom to the map’s full extent, click the globe button.

    At the locus, pail, and pail contents levels, shape and pin icons may appear (see the example below). The shape icon indicates that that item is available to view as a shapefile/polygon(s). The pin icon indicates that that item has coordinates, and thus displays as a point on the map.
    ...
    4) Zooms to the extent of an area bounded by a box made by clicking and dragging the mouse.
    5) Clears all graphics and points, leaving raster images. Shift-clicking this button clears everything that is selected in the left-hand panel, including raster images.
    6) What does this do?(not currently used)
    7) Makes all polygons outlines, removing their fill colors. (Note: When shapefiles are selected, they are each assigned a different random color. This button simply makes them hollow.)
    8) Toggles elevations.
    9) To display particular elevations of selected items, type the elevation code here (eg. T071 or B021 for specific elevations, or T* or B* for only top and bottom elevations).
    10) Toggles labels.
    11) What does this do?(To be determined.)
    12) Toggles 0.5 m grid lines.
    13) Toggles 0.1 m grid lines.

    Registered Find Pins
    When a registered find has an associated elevation/coordinates, it appears on the map as a green pin. Clicking this pin will bring up a bubble dialog with the find description and photo or drawing (whichever appears first as a linked item, if available) (see below).
