Filter data from a layer

3 min Medium


When your map contains multiple layers with different geometries, the filter feature is a good option for searching and displaying only some of the data on the mapview. For example, you can filter based on postal code, city name, or areas with population over 1000 etc. This way you can quickly locate the data of interest on the mapview.

Step 1. To open the Filters window, click on the image1040 button in front of the layer name.
