A template in TrueNorth is a Map, or a set of layers, set up and ready to be re-used.
We find templates are useful for a number of situations
- To store a map that’s ready for use
- Templates stored in the Template directory are available when you create a new map under the “New from Template” menu.
- To store configuration parameters for plugins that are loaded into the map.
- An example is the Tracking Layer – creating a template for this layer stores all of the parameters for the tracking and the field units
