Sorting (ranking) a model set

Depending on the settings (Matching settings, using models without mapping entry / no DB entry), it can be configured if two models have the same matching score, which one is taken.

Just a few hints at the very beginning

  • Sorting order of the model set only applies if two models are calculated "as equal" by the algorithm. It depends on the settings how the calculation is done.
  • In general you should ask yourself why you have the same models multiple times in your set, e.g. why did you add 2 B747 of DLH, so what do you try to achieve by that? See Removing duplicates from a model set (reduce set).

Remove duplicates

If you have no duplicates there is no real need for ranking, see Removing duplicates from a model set (reduce set). Ranking is needed if more than one model have the same score, but if you have only one aircraft/livery combination it is not very likely that this happens.

Manually ranking

  • You can manually apply a rank by the context menu
  • The rank is displayed in the first column
  • If you sort by another column it does mean the ranking has changed
  • However, if you like a certain sort order to become your current ranking, just use "freeze order". After you will see that the rank column will change order accordingly

Make filtered data my model set

  • If you filter a model set, this is a temporary action and the model set will not be changed
  • If you want to keep the filtered data as your new model set, just use "materialize" from the context menu

Rank by distribution order

In order to create a sorted order by distributor you can apply a distributor ranking

  • First you need to create preferences by distributor in the settings
    of the mapping tool
  • Then you can apply these preferences
  • Now you have a sort column for distributors and you can use to "sort by distributors"
  • Once you are happy with your sorting, you can use "freeze order"

Matching

In order to use the rank you need to enable the setting!
