5. Data sharing and user access

Layers, Folders and Files can be shared with other users and systems. The access level defines which operations can be performed by the person or system with whom data has been shared. The table below lists all access levels (and their meaning) that can be set by the Amin of a Folder, Layer or File.

Receiver now also has access to explicitly restricted information, such as private properties of features.



The receiver can now manage the layer in the settings dashboard. Add timestamps, upload files etc.



Receiver now has access to the file system itself. The receiver can add new layers, rename layers, move layers to another folder and even trash layers. The only restriction on admin users is that they are not able to permanently delete things. Only the owner of a layer has this privilege and as such all actions of not-owner users can always be undone.

Layers can be 'geofenced', meaning that the people or systems you are sharing data with can be restricted to certain geographic areas.
