Display the Layers list


Standard users can perform the basic functions of this workflow; you do not need to sign in to an ArcGIS account.

When you add data to a map, the data appears as one or more layers. To work with the layers in a map, you can display the Layers list to access a variety of tools. You can hide the Layers list at any time when you want a full view of the map.
