Overview

Custom Map Layers provide a flexible way to display overlays on a Map. This feature allows creation of custom visualizations to share with customers. These include such overlays as custom images, Coverage Raster images, and Geographic borders.

Note

The Custom Layers Feature must be explicitly enabled for Portal Accounts. Please contact Senet support for access to this feature.
