Enhancements Provide New Options to Customize Data Explorer Maps

July 26, 2017

We are pleased to announce enhancements to the Data Explorer that give users more control over how data are displayed on the interactive map. The new functionalities are provided in the Active Layers tab located on the left side of the Data Explorer window.

  • Click on the Active Layers tab to see a list of the data layers that have been selected on the All Layers tab.
  • In the Active Layers list, drag a layer up to make it display on top of other layers on the map or down to make it display underneath other layers.
  • Click on a checkbox to temporarily hide a layer on the map without removing it from the Active Layers list.
  • Click on red “X” to remove a layer from the Active Layers list.

The Active Layers tab also includes a transparency slider and a layer information button for each data layer.
