Plot a Marker Layer
Plot a Marker Layer
Plotting a Marker Layer is essential to using MapAnything. Marker Layers are made up of combinations of search criteria. Plotting Marker Layers produces markers which users can interact with and overlay to create unique views of their customer data.
To plot a query, follow the below directions.
1. Navigate to the Sidebar and click the Layers tab.
2. Choose either the Recent or Saved sub-tab, depending on where the Marker Layer is located that you want to plot.
3. Find the layer you want to plot and select it.
Note: Hovering over the three vertical dots beside the layer name allows for the following options:
Plot: Select this option to plot the layer to the map.
Plot Visible Area: This option provides users with the opportunity to plot a layer with results limited to the visible area of the map. Choosing this option skips any records that are not goeocoded. This is a best practice for users with large data sets who only need to see a subset of the data volume.
Add/ Remove Plot on Load: This option provides users with the opportunity to plot the layer to the map once the MapAnything application is launched. Learn more about Plot On Load here.
Edit: This option provides users with the opportunity to edit an existing layer’s criteria.
Clone: When creating a new layer with similar criteria to an existing query, utilizing the clone feature enables users to copy the existing criteria to the new layer and make simple modifications.
Copy To: This option allows users to copy a layer from the Corporate folder to that users Named Folder.
Move To: This option allows users to move a layer from the Corporate folder to that users Named Folder.
Delete: This option allows a user to delete the layer in question from their Named Folder. A User must be assigned the appropriate permissions to delete a layer from the Corporate folder.
Note: Larger layers may take a few minutes to plot initially. However, once addresses have been geocoded, they do not have to be geocoded again, therefore the layer should plot within a shorter time frame.
