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, and the Overlays layer can only be configured after Overlay Types have been configured. 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. Open the zoning layer item in ArcGIS Online.
  2. Open the layer in Map Viewer.
  3. Add the layer to the web map.
  4. Save the item.
  5. In ArcGIS Urban, click the Manage button gear icon at the upper right to open the Manager.
  6. Click Layers > Zoning.
  7. Click Add.

    The portal item picker appears.

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

    The Field Matching dialog box appears.

  9. 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

Overlays can be added from a feature layer (hosted) in your ArcGIS Online organization. Multiple Overlays layers can be added. Field matching must be completed before you can link the Overlays layer to its corresponding Overlay Type.

  1. Open the Manager.
  2. Click Layers > Overlays.
  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.

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.
