Filter Layer List

Today we will be discussing the "Filter Layers" option in the layer list. This new feature lets you find layers in your site faster.

Many of you have spent years getting all sorts of information into your GIS system. This is great for analysis and exhibits, but the mass of layers can be hard to sort through. Layers can get buried in folder within folders and becomes hard to turn on. As you notice in the photo below, there are many folders that may be expanded within a layer toolbar! This can sometimes make it a bit of a hassle to find what you are looking for.


Now, if you would like to find a particular folder, sub-folder, layer, etc. you simply type what you are looking for into the search bar (i.e. "contours" shown in below screenshot).


It is simple, but can really come in handy when trying to find an item you don't use often!
