Layer Order

In TrueNorth, layers draw, or “render”, in the order they appear in the Layers Panel.

Open the Layers Panel by clicking on the Layers button on the Map Tab Strip.

Map Tab

The Layers Panel will open, displaying your currently open maps, and the layers within those maps.

Layers Panel

The layers are rendered, in order, from the top of the list. Some of those layers might contain information that blocks other layers from view. In general, map tiles from online sources will block other data. It’s important to keep layers with tiles and other base map data near the beginning of the rendering order, and leave the Features Layer where users will draw points line and polygons lower in the list.

Change the order

  1. Select the layer by clicking on it
  2. Click the up or down arrow to move the layer up or down in the order
