Using imported layers

Importing different data layers to your main layer 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 layer for each of these data types.

Here's video walking through the Import process

TIP: If you want to avoid making a choice about which layer to use to import other layers onto, you can create an empty vector layer and populate it with vector and raster data by importing layers from elsewhere in the drive.

Follow the steps below to learn how you can mix, match and visualize different data layers simultaneously.

1️⃣ Create an empty vector layer.
2️⃣ Go to the viewer and import the vector layer / raster layer by browsing the respective layer in the BROWSE section.
3️⃣ Navigate to MAP LAYERS 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 BOOKMARK VIEW option in the sidebar.
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 layer that you import. Otherwise, some layers may not be visible/editable. For some users, such selective visibility may actually be the intent.
