Add Layers to a Map
Maptitude allows you to add layers to or remove layers from a map (see
the training video), change the order in which the layers are
drawn, hide a layer temporarily without removing it from a map, make
a hidden layer visible again, and rename a layer. You make all these
changes using the Layers dialog box.
You can add layers as follows:
1. Choose File-New, choose Map,
then choose General Purpose Map and follow the
prompts to map your area of interest.
2. Choose Map-Layers and Click Add
Layer to display the File Open dialog box.
3. Browse to the c:\ccdata\ folder (the default
location Maptitude uses to install layer files) and choose
Geographic File as the file type.
4. Choose one or more geographic files such as ccCBSA.Cdf
which contains US Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs).
5. Click Open. Map layers in the geographic files
are added to the layers in the map.
6. Click Close.
Maptitude draws the map with the new layers. The layer list in the
Display Manager is updated to include the added layers. If you save the workspace, the
new layers will automatically be included in the map the next time
you open the workspace.
