Where to find all map layers

Customization is key to Unearth. Within your site, you can add personal plan layers, adjust your site boundaries, view all linked assets, and drone surveys, and you can change the basemap of your site. The "Map Layers" dropdown window compactly groups these features, allowing for quick navigation and use. Here's how to locate the window and what you can do with it:


1. Click on the "Map Layers" button on the right side of your site to open the dropdown window.

Once you open the window, you'll see individual groups ("Plans," "Place Boundaries," "Links," "UAV Surveys," and "Basemaps"). We'll go through each one of these now:


  • Plans 

When you upload plan layers to your site, they will appear in a list in the "Map Layers" window.

Click the carrot next to "Plans" to view all of the plans that are on your site.

  • Place Boundaries

You initially create a site by setting boundaries. In the "Place Boundaries" tab, you can visualize your bounds on your site map. This way you can see what work has been done inside your designated work area. You can also manage places, meaning you can associate certain geographical areas with polygons. This way you can control one larger site that may have smaller, individual projects within it. 


Click on the carrot next to "Place Boundaries." This will enable you to toggle on or off site bounds and any place or building bounds.

You can also click on "Manage Places/Levels," which will take you off of your site and allow you to edit or add map levels to your site and edit your site bounds if needed.

  • Links

When you apply filters to your site, assets that are not within those filters will not appear on the map. If you want to show assets that are not on the map but are linked to current assets shown, you can toggle on the "Links" switch.

  • UAV Surveys

In the "Map Layers," you will find all of your uploaded drone surveys. When you click the dropdown, a list of the surveys will appear and you can select which one you'd like to view.

  • Basemaps

Finally, you have the ability to change your basemap. You have the choice between a: satellite, light, dark, or no basemap. The most popular among customers is the light basemap. Simply click on the dropdown to see your options.
