Archive Layers are transparent map layers that overlay the Base Layer map. Archive Layer graphics are rendered from the spatial geometry stored in the database, but the control of Archive Layers resides in Keeping Culture. There is no limit to the number of Archive Layers that can be defined in the system.
In the steps below, a Place layer is created from the spatial geometry held in the Place Profile class.
To create an Archive Layer (in this example a ‘Places’ layer):
- Log into the Archive using a Super Administrator account and proceed to: Administration → Home.
- Click the ‘Archive Layers’ link under the ‘Mapping’ heading.
- Click the ‘Add’ button to display the New Archive Layer Wizard. Enter the following values into the fields:
Geometry Attribute: Places -> Location (locationGeom)
- Select ‘Name (placeName)’ in the ‘Supplemental Attributes’ list. Click ‘Continue’.
- Change the ‘Label Attribute’ property to ‘Name’. Click ‘Continue’, then click ‘Done’ to finish.
