Navigating

When you start exploring, it's always good to know your way around first so that you always find your way back.

In this section, we'll start on the main Dashboard with the Project and Data Hub tabs and the options you find there.

Then we look at the one project and see how to navigate between Layers as well as different views, like Map view and Data view.

Dashboard

Projects

The dashboard is the main landing page after you log in and it shows you a overview of all your projects. You see at a glance a summary of your project with its settings and a small thumbnail of the map. You also see if it has been published already.

If you have a lot of projects, you will also see a couple of organizer functions that help you quickly get an overview or find what you're looking for.

Data Hub

The Data Hub lists all datasets you can access and use directly in projects. You can narrow down the list by searching for a specific dataset. You can also upload data as a new dataset.

You can also manage your data, upload new datasets, edit entries, delete complete datasets and of course download a file of the content stored in our cloud.

Project

Map View

You can quickly navigate around the map using the mouse, changing the view by dragging the map and using the zoom control (or the mouse wheel) to quickly zoom nearer or father away from the map. You can also search for cities and places by using the search bar.

Map Bookmarks

As your map becomes bigger and the data more complex it is often the case that you need to switch between different pre-defined map views. So in each project you can define you own location bookmarks and quickly switch between them.
