Layers are the visualization of data in Smart World Professional.  Anything created in the map window including BIM, CAD or GIS data is managed in layers.  The Layers panel includes controls for setting layer visibility, layer name, layer type, controls for layering and deleting a dataset.

Layer Visibility

The far left column of Layers is the visibility of each layer.  This is where you turn layers on and off in the map window.

Layer Name

The second column is the layer name.

Layer Type

The third column is the layer type.  This is generally either an Asq query (from Datasets or Asq itself) or Building where a 3D model is loaded.

Layer Controls

The layer controls allow layering of Asq layers.  If you have a point layer and you want it to appear on top of a polygon layer, this is where you control them.  The list is built on the layering system, layers at the top are above layers on the bottom.  Buildings always appear at the top of the list but they too can be layered.

Lock Layer

The layer lock essentially locks a layer into place so that it cannot be moved, deleted or hidden.

Delete Layer

To delete a layer, simply click the delete icon at the far right of the layer list.
