Using imported layers
Importing different data layers into a map gives you the possibility to mix, match, and manage your content flexibly.
When looking to combine both vector data and raster data, or raster data of different types, you need to create a new map for each of these data types. Click here to view a diagram that helps you decide how to appropriately divide your data across maps.
TIP: If you want to avoid making a choice about which map to use to import other layers onto, you can create an empty vector map and populate it with vector and raster data by importing layers from elsewhere in the drive.
Follow the steps to learn how you can mix, match and visualize different data layers simultaneously.

STEP 1

Create an empty vector map.

STEP 2

Go to the viewer and import the vector layer by browsing the respective vector map in the BROWSE pane.

STEP 3

Import the raster layer by browsing the respective raster map in the BROWSE pane.

STEP 4

Go to the LAYERS pane and you will find the imported layers at the top of the list. You can check/uncheck and rearrange the layers as per your need. You can save the state of the current view of your map by clicking on the SAVE LAYERS button.
When using the SHARE VIEW option, you can configure imported layers in any way you like and the person you share the link with will be seeing the same.
Note: One thing to be mindful of here, is that you need to make sure that the proper access level is set for each map that you import. Otherwise, some layers may not be visible/editable. For some users, such selective visibility may actually be the intent.
