Working with Layer View

Each overlay object in Image View belong to a layer, which can be accessed in the Layer View. This layer has setting parameters. Actually Image View and Network View draw the objects by taking into account the layer parameter values. These values are for example, color and size of the overlay object.

Each project has a base layer which is called “_base”. This base layer is created from the beginning of the project and is by default the Current Layer for drawing. Any new object overlay (image point, line, polyline etc.) will be in the Current Layer and therefore they will have the layer settings value for visualization in Image View and Network View. The Image View shows the Current Layer of drawing as follows:


The Image View shows the Current Layer of drawing


More layers can be added to the Project depending on the need. For example, a layer for points on the floor and another layer for the points on the wall:


More layers can be added to the Project depending on the need.


The previously created/drawn overlay objects can be assigned to a new Layer at only Image View following these steps:

Step 1. Select the overlay objects in Image View.

Selection is done by pressing <Ctrl-key> and pressing left mouse button and moving the mouse to create a rectangle. Objects inside the rectangle are selected.

Select the overlay objects in Image View. Selection of object overlays

Objects inside the rectangle are selected.
Step 2. Go to the Current Layer Selection tool:

Go to the Current Layer Selection tool

and select the layer that you would like the selected objects to be transferred to:

and select the layer that you would like the selected objects to be transferred to:

Step 3. The selected objects are now transferred to the new layer:

The selected objects are now transferred to the new layer

Note: The layer of single points (points with the symbol of X) cannot be changed. Therefore, they have only the color of the base layer.

Layer View Parameters

The following shows the Layer View Settings:
