There are a few scenarios where you might want to delete a Map Layer, for example;

  • When the data is no longer relevant
  • If you've made a mistake when creating a new Map Layer, e.g. if you choose the wrong geometry type
  • If you're simply experimenting with new layers and want to remove them

Important Note: When deleting a Map Layer this is a permanent and irreversible action.

Note: Please don't confuse this operation with deleting an individual feature stored within a Map Layer. To remove an individual feature from a Map Layer, see the article on Feature Editing.
