The Layers panel provides the list of different layers that can be displayed on the map.
To access the Layers panel (to turn layers on or off, display the legend/key, reorder or change the transparency of layers) select the Layers panel button on the left hand side of the platform.
The layers highlighted below are the default layers activated when you sign in to MapStand at the start of each session.
To find layers quickly - start typing the name of the layer you want to find in the filter layers area of the Layers panel (highlighted below):
Click on the “X” to cancel and list all layers again.
The symbol allows you to turn individual layers on and off.
To display the key or legend - click on the symbol on the right hand side of each layer. The symbol changes to and the legend/key is displayed.
The legend displayed depends on the layer selected.
To hide the legend again click on the symbol.
Top Tip: Some layers (boreholes, accumulations and blocks) have scale dependent visibility. The legend or key is dynamic so will only show what is currently displayed. If the map is too large (scale bar = 2000km) then these layers will not be displayed, even when they are switched on. Also, if you try to view the legend, you will see the words "Legend is not available"
To change the order of layers, you can drag and drop layers easily. Click on the layer you want to display on top, then drag it to the position above the layer that is obscuring it. Alternatively, click on the layer that is obscuring the layer you want to see and drag it below the layer you are interested in.
Lastly, you can increase the transparency of each layer by moving the slider bar
to the left. To reduce the transparency again, move the slider to the right. In the example below, I have increased the transparency of the Licenses/Concessions layer to 53% allowing me to see the 2D seismic lines layer underneath.
