1.0 Working with layers on the map

Modified on Thu, 19 Jan 2023 at 03:08 PM

The Layers button on the map (highlighted below) allows you to adjust how you view the data. 

Working with Layers


Adjust the order in which the outputs are layered

  • Click on the Layers icon to view the layers.

  • The layer at the top of the list is "at the front" of all the layers viewed on the map. 
  • The layer at the bottom is behind all the other layers (and so obscured by them - you can't see the layers at the back without changing the transparency of the layers in front).
  • The two horizontal lines is the handle that allows you to drag the layers into different positions in the view order.
  • Note: The order in which the layers are displayed is automated based on how quickly the outputs are returned back to Earth Blox. This may be different from the order of the blocks in the workspace.

Adjust the transparency of the layers

  • Each layer in the list has a slider. 
  • The slider adjusts the transparency of each layer. 
  • The eye icon allows you to toggle between being visible or invisible (fully transparent). 

Removing a layer

  • Each layer has an X button next to it.
  • Clicking the X will delete the layer from the map. 
  • WARNING: you cannot recover the layer once it is deleted unless you repeat the RUN WORKFLOW to redo the analysis.
