Add and configure layers

The Layers tab in the Manager refers to the different Layer data that can be configured in ArcGIS Urban. You can configure the following layer types on the Layers tab:

  • Zoning
  • Overlays
  • Parcels
The Zoning layer can only be configured after Zoning Types have been configured. The Overlays layer as well as the Parcels layer does not depend on any other data. All layers are added from a feature layer (hosted) that must be added to your ArcGIS Online organization.

Add Zoning layers

To add a Zoning layer, first add zoning types and then complete the following steps:

  1. In ArcGIS Urban, click the Manage button gear icon at the upper right to open the Manager.
  2. Click Layers > Zoning.
  3. Click Add.

    The portal item picker appears.

  4. Click the layer you want to use to select it and click OK.

    The Field Matching dialog box appears.

  5. Match the fields correctly and click OK.

    Your Zoning layer appears as a single layer in the Manager.

    Note:

    You can only have one Zoning layer. The Zoning layer is the layer containing a city's zoning boundary lines. You must delete all zones before adding a new one.

Overlays

Before you can add the Overlay boundaries you have to configure Overlay parameters first. Multiple Overlays layers can be added. Overlay boundaries can be imported from a feature layer (hosted) in your ArcGIS Online organization and linked to any of the previously defined Overlays.

  1. Open the Manager.
  2. Click Layers > Overlays.
  3. Click Configure.
  4. Click Add Overlay.
  5. Click the newly added bar called Untitled, provide a name and configure the overlay parameters.
    • Click Add Overlay if you want to add more Overlays and repeat this step.
    • Click OK once you are done with the overlay parameter definition.

    You see a list of the previously defined Overlays.

  6. For each Overlay, click Add to add overlay boundaries.

    The portal item picker appears.

  7. Click the layer you want to use to select it and click OK.

    The Field Matching dialog box appears.

  8. Match the fields correctly and click OK

    The boundaries get imported and attached to the corresponding Overlay.

  9. Click OK to close the import dialog box.

    The Count column of the corresponding Overlay shows how many boundaries were imported.

Parcels

Parcels can be added from a feature layer in your ArcGIS Online organization. Only one Parcels layer can be added. To add a new parcels layer, the old one must be deleted first.

  1. Open the Manager.
  2. Click Layers > Parcels.
  3. Click Add.

    The portal item picker appears.

  4. Click the layer you want to use to select it and click OK.

    The Field Matching dialog box appears.

  5. Match the fields correctly and click OK.
