Map Layers is the element that holds the mapping geospatial data, and is the mechanism used to display information on the map. You can display up to 14 Map Layers at any one time.
There are 2 types of map layers;
1. Organizational Layers – Map layers developed internally by your organization. This organizational data is grouped into four locations; Headquarters (HQ), Regions, Sites and Operations. (A detailed explanation of how Organizational data is structured can be found here).
2. Global Layers – Map layers provided by RippleNami. rWAVES displays Global Layers as relevant, requested or licensed by Global Incident. These layers consist of natural and global incidents such as Current Traffic, Weather to Terrorist Acts and Suspicious Activity.
