  2. Data Filters - This tool allows you to filter data using data query or spatial query options.

      For more information, see Data Query.

    • Spatial Query - This option filters data through two options; Select by Location and Select by Graphics.

  3. Swipe - This tool allows you to easily view and interact with the overlapping layers in a map session by dragging the mouse in the horizontal or vertical direction. First, you must select a layer to implement this tool. Click on the swipe tool pointer on the map session to switch between these two orientations.
