Layers Panel

Modified on 2021/09/27 17:24 by Adam — Categorized as: Features, Menu Bar

The maps within Surety® & Surety® Pro are made up of different layers. These layers are a visual representation of objects and/or data on the map. Each layer can be enabled/disabled depending on your preference. Some of these layers are enabled by default while others need to be manually enabled if you want them to display.

Some layers behave differently than others. We have broken the different types of layers down into 4 different categories.


The term layers panel refers to the area of the mapping interface all of the data layers that Surety or Surety Pro can display are located. From the layers panel, each layer is available to be enabled or disabled.

Click Layers on the right hand panel to display the Layers Panel.
