Loading Map Layers in Collections
Collections allow you to create and store pre-loaded content for use during an event or incident. This includes map layers. Before you can use customized may layers in a Channel, first you need to add them in the Admin Area.
🔑 ACCESS LEVEL: Account Owner or Editor
ℹ️ NOTE: Supported formats for your map layers are: GeoJson (.json + .geojson), GPS Exchange format (.gpx), Keyhole Markup Language (.kml, .kmz), Shapefile archive (.zip).
