The visual representation of a map session are determined by the style feature. Certain factors like zoom extent and label features are common for all styles. This panel is accessible only after a layer is selected. Several components are available on top of the panel to manage and maintain every layer.

  1. Layer Name - You must give a title to the map layer which can be edited anytime.

  2. Zoom to Layer - You can view the extent of the selected geometry.

  3. View - You can select between map or table view. The default view is Map, in which map layers are displayed next to layer panel. When you toggle to Table view, the screen divides horizontally (by default) into two sections, the former displays map layers and the latter displays table with all layer data attributes and values in it. The top row of the Table has following components:
    • Layer Name - Name of the map layer that you provided.

    • Fullscreen - You can expand the Table to the entire screen.

    • Horizontal - You can divide the screen into two sections horizontally, with map layers above and data table below. The layers can be switched by selecting the name of the layer on the top of the table.

    • Vertical - You can divide the screen into two sections vertically, with map layers to the left and data table to the right. The layers can be switched by selecting them from drop-down on the top of the table.

  4. Unapproved Edits - You can view a log of all unapproved data changes for attributes after collaborators implement changes. You can enable this feature by switching the toggle option.

There is an Ellipsis at the top right that provides a list of action items such as:
  • Filter - This component directs to Query Builder. You can enter a query using attributes and operators to get desired output.
  • Preview - You can learn about the attributes of the data for the selected layer.
  • Rename - You can update the name of the layer.
  • Copy - You can create a copy of the selected layer to the selected map session.
  • Move - You can migrate the selected layer to any selected map session.
There are four distinct types of styling provided such as:
  1. Fixed - This style visualizes the basic styling for the map session layer. This includes factors such as fill color, border thickness, opacity, which can be used to customize the layers.
  2. Categorized - This style is used to visualize the map session layer based on a specific attribute.
  3. Graduated - This style divides the data for an attribute into different classes and represents the distribution in the map session layer.
  4. Heat Map - This style visualizes the distribution of points through bubble or heat map styling and is only available for point layers.
