I am using avenza maps app on an android tablet. I have uploaded a base map and a few data layers that i’d like to collect data into. I’m struggling to change the active layer, or even set an active layer to collect features to. Whenever i go to collect new features it seems to create a new layer instead of allowing me to update a layer that i already have.
Is this possible with avenza maps or am i trying to do something that is not a part of the app? Is it possible to switch between layers that you are collecting features into?
Example: i have two layers. One i’d like to collect waypoints of certain trees, and one i’d like to collect waypoints of certain rocks. Each have different attributes details to collect (trees will have species, height and DBH, rocks will have colour, size and hardness). When i find a tree that i’d like to mark i want to be in the trees layer so i can use those particular attribute collumns. When i want to mark a rock i’d like to be in the rock layer so i can use those specific attribute collumns to mark details.
Is this possible?
Thanks for any input.
Thank you for your post. This is absolutely possible within Avenza Maps! To change the active layer you will need to:
1. Tap the Map Features list (pin with the 3 lines)
2. Long press on the layer that you wish to make the active layer to enable edit mode
3. Tap the pencil icon at the top of the screen to enter the edit dialog
4. Toggle “Set to Current Layer” on to make this the active layer
When you need to switch the active layer, repeat this process for that respective layer.
