Layer List

Filter by device

The Layer List is where you decide what information you would like to display on the map. Within the layer list you also have a number of options that allow you to access metadata, adjust layer transparency, reorder layers, or disable/enable map pop-ups.

Turn layers on or off by ticking/un-ticking the boxes next to the layer name.

Access sub-layers by tapping the drop-down arrow to the left of the layer name. Sub-layers offer individual data-sets within the main main layer.
