uMap/Guide/Create a layer
uMap stores markers, lines, and polygons in layers.
The creation of a uMap map wil automatically create 1 standard layer (Layer 1).
More layers can be created with this procedure.
- Step 2: Select on the right side Manage Layers
- Step 3: Select in the panel with existing layers Add layer. See 1. The system will create an additional layer and show the panel to edit layer properties.
- Step 4: A layer without a name will be referenced in the system with name undefined. The name can be modified later. Recommendation: give a layer immediately a name (see 2) and also a description see (3). The description may contain text formatting.
- Step 5: Save
A description of the other options in Layer properties can be found in UMap/Guide/Edit layer properties.
