Layers provide a simple way to group different objects together so that you can organise your site layout more easily.
For example, if you were creating a landscaping plan, you might draw out all of the areas of retaining walls, and then group those areas together under a layer called ‘Retaining walls’.
You can create as many layers as you want in your workspace and save them to a project.
Accessing the Layer Manager
Click the Layers tool in the Sidebar to access the Layer Manager. The Layer Manager is a panel that is displayed on the left of the MapBrowser window.
Layer Manager panels
The Layer Manager comprises the following panels:
|Feature Layers||Every object, shape, or text you add to the map is added as a feature layer.|
A data layer is a visualisation of information overlaid on to the map. Data Layers are grouped by:
- AI Layers
- GeoData Link layers
- Roads and Boundaries
You will see the AI and GeoData Link layers only if you have a subscription for these products.
Resizing Layer Manager panels
