Adjust Plan Layers

After a plan layer is added to the project, you can go back and make changes to the location or color on the map.

Plan layers allow you to keep track of past work that has been completed, upload previously mapped data, and see any physical annotations you may have associated with your project. Once you stake a plan, you are able to go back and change the color of the layer as well as adjust the location on the map.

If your plan overlay isn't lined up to your aerial imagery the way you would like, you can adjust it by editing the stakes that pin it to the map.

  1. Start by opening the Layers menu on the right side of your screen.adjust layer 1
  2. Step 1) click the caret next to "Plans" to drop down the full list of uploaded plan layers. Step 2) click the caret next to the plan you want to align.adjust layer 2
  3. You will be able to quickly change the color, edit the position of the layer, or delete the layer in this window. To edit the layer, click on "Edit Layer" in this window. You may need to scroll down in the window. You'll also see the option to delete the layer at the bottom of the window.adjust layer 3adjust layer 4
  4. After clicking "Edit Layer," you'll see a side-by-side with the project map on the left, the plan layer on the right, and a matching set of stakes on each. Adjust the stakes near the area you feel is misaligned so that they both correspond to their real world location. You can also add an additional set of stakes to get more precise. Once you're finished, click the "Next" arrow in the top right corner to see the results. adjust layer 5
