Administration panel: Layers

Administration Panel -> Data – > Layers is where the Administrator manages the Layers.

This is where a lot of things happen. This is the place where the Administrator:

  1. Manages vector layers, in particular
    1. Adds new Layers from data sources
    2. Changes the Layer Settings
    3. Manages the Object Card
    4. Gives default symbolisation to general layers
  2. Manages WMS layers
    1. Adds WMS Layers to the System
    2. Manages existing WMS Layers
  3. Manages the Layer Manager, i.e. decides which layers Users can use in the Map Module

Use cases for layers

  1. Creating a layer from a source (point 4 of this article)
  2. Creating a layer with a filter. (Section 4.2.c of this article)
