Editable layer on the map

Layers without a corresponding Edit button are not editable in DigiTerra Explorer.

 

Layers are not editable due to one of the following reasons:

1. Editing of the layer type is not supported in DigiTerra Explorer (image layers).

2. The layer is read-only. Vector layers can be read-only if the file permissions are set as read-only.

 

dtListLock Locked layer

Unlock a locked layer: tap on the dtListLock button and select the Edit option from the displayed "Lock / Edit / Point info" menu.

Edit: edits the active layer

Point info: dtListPointInfo can be set to a point feature layer which collects attributes for vertices during a GPS measurement in a line or polygon feature layer
