Customize and Edit Layers

IGIS Map Tool maps are composed of stacked layers of datasets, styled than rendered as image tiles in your browser on top of a Basemap Layer.

Here are some of the important features to be used in IGIS Map:

  • Switching Base Map

    Base Maps can be switched according to the will of user in IGIS Map. It just requires few steps:

    • Click on the Add Base Map button under Layer section.on the Map portal as shown below.
    • Now Select the base map of your choice from the Base Map popup and this is how you can switch from one base map to another.
  • Edit Layer Style

    Each and every spatial geographic map can be edited in the Map portal with different kind of styles.User can create different kind of maps here like these:

    • Basic Map:

      Basic maps are the map which users get the first time he uploads the layer of any dataset. For styling a map layer in basic map style follow these steps:

      • Click on the Style Layer button as shown below on the Map portal.
      • Click on the layer name you want to style or click on style, which will redirect you to the Edit layer style popup page.
      • Select Basic on Edit layer section.
      • Vector symbols allow you to have full control over the Fill and Stroke/outline color and the Stroke size.
      • You can also check and change the opacity of the layer’s Fill and Outline Section.
      • Click the Save Style button and see the change in style on the map portal.
    • Category Map:

      Category layer styling allows you to give features within a layer specific styles based on values in the attribute data. Which can be done as follows:

      • Select the Category section in the Edit layer Style popup.
      • User can select the particular column from the column dropdown which consist each column of the editing layer in it. You can select the column in which manner you want to categories the map.
      • By default each different value in the column will be given its own color from the selected color. If you wish to customise the color of any categories in the legend then you can change the color of the ramp in the fill section.
      • The category columns have the limit of not more than 50 unique values. As it can not style more than 50 values. So the first 50 will be used here.
      • You can also change the stroke color and size in Stroke section and can also set the opacity of the fill section and stroke or outline section.
      • Click the Save Style button and see the change in style on the map portal.
    • Bubble Map:

      The Bubble map style shows circular markers for points, lines, and polygon features of different size. The bubble sizes are based on a selected numerical attribute value from your layer.

      For styling your data as bubble map follow these steps:

      • Select the Bubble section in the Edit layer Style popup.
      • User can choose the numerical attribute in column to reference for the size of the marker in class break section and in the parts section.

      • Click the Save Style button and see the change in style of map s bubble map on the map portal.
    • Quantity Map:

      Styling Quantity layer allows user to create a choropleth map. In this maps in which areas are shaded in proportion to the measurement of the numerical attribute value of the feature being displayed on the map.

      Quantity maps can be generated as follows:

      • Select the Quantity section in the Edit layer Style popup.
      • User needs to fill the class break section, the column dropdown contains the name each column in the datasets attribute table.

    • Heat Map:

      The heat map style shows density of geographic points as a gradient color layer. In Heat Maps the highest density of geographic points is shown as red color and the lowest density as blue color. Heat map can only be styled in the point data. To create a heat map follow these procedure:

      • Select the Heat section in the Edit layer Style popup.
      • The Merge Radius is the distance between points for clustering. User needs to fill the Merge Radius carefully as the greater the number of points that fall within the radius, the greater the intensity of the heatmap and greater the color red.
      • When user set the radius to a small number it generates the isolated spots and if the user sets the radius to large the map won’t show any details.
      • User can also set the opacity for setting the transparency between the 0 to 100%.
      • Click the Save Style button and see the change in style on the map portal.
  • Labels:

  • Proximity Analysis:

    The Proximity analysis in IGIS Map Tool lets the user create the spatial data filters or queries so that the user can get the access and provide relationship between two layers or points features or data.

    This Proximity tool can be used to determine the relationship between the different layers of different types. The types of layers are generally of 3 types i.e. point, line or polygon.

    This tool defines the relationship on the basis of these few factors:

    • Touch
    • Are Closer than
    • Are further than
    • Are outside

    For proximity analysis user needs to follow these steps:

    • Click on Proximity Analysis under Analysis section.

    • Select the relationship for analysis between B and Selected layer in the That dropdown list.
    • Select the Layer you need to find features of in the Selected section dropdown list.
    • Confirm a shape (circle , rectangle or polygon). User just need to select the shape and start drawing the following shape on the map to perform proximity analysis.
    • Click on the Get result button after completely drawing the Proximity shape.
    • Now user can view the proximity analysis of features on the map portal.
    • User can now view the query result in the form of database table and can also download the data in the CSV format
