Browsing & Arranging Layers

This tutorial deals with how layers are arranged in, and how to manipulate and edit them.

1. Layer Panel Sections

The Layer Panel is located on left side, once you have entered in an existing Site (project) :

It is made of three sections :

  • Site Data
  • Survey Data
  • Base Layers

Most often, the Base Layers section actually houses the Orthomosaics & DSMs obtained from photogrammetry processing in :

Depending on your industry and use case, as an example here in Agriculture, Base Layers may house additional layers such as a Reflectance Map and a CIR (Color-infrared) map; some scouting maps may also have to be regrouped there as well :

NB : These three different sections will actually appear according to the content available in your site. In the simplest form, assuming you have created a new site with only a kml point to start with, then only the Site Data section, and its Reference Files subsection, will be visible as in example below , and this until your add more files :

As another example, dropping an image dataset for storage only without immediate photogrammetry processing will result in the Image Locations to be available and an empty Base Layers section : 

2. Creating & editing layer groups

You can add new groups and subgroups to the base skeleton of Site Data, Survey Data, and Base Layers, in order to properly organize and hierarchize your layers and annotations. The related section shall not be empty for a group to be inserted. Open the drop-down menu in front of the section and select Add a group :

Using group tree structure is a convenient way to view specific areas :

3. Customized view reset

1. To reset a view, open menu on right side of Search bar :

2. Then confirm reset :
