Import Layer Template

TrueNorth uses Layer Templates to store configuration for map layer data. These templates are normally stored in the Template Directory, but you can also export and import layer templates in order to save, or share the configurations with other users.

To import a layer template

  1. On the main menu choose Import => Import Layer Template
  2. Browse to the file you wish to import
  3. You will be prompted to import the file to the layers directory
    1. If you select “yes” you’ll be prompted to create a directory
      This is just for organisational purposes.
    2. When you select “OK” the imported layer template will be copied to the layer directory
    3. From now on it will be available whenever you add a new layer from a template.
  4. The layer will open and be added to the current map.
