It's possible to filter Map Layers in a number of ways


Filter by Values

To filter a Map Layer based the values stored within Map Objects:

  1. In the Layer Control, find the layer you want to filter and switch it on
  2. Hover over the Tick icon next to the Layer name. This turns into a Cog. Click the Cog.
  3. In the Layer mini-menu, click Filter
  4. From the 'Filter Column' drop-down, choose the column of information stored within that layer that you want to filter on.
  5. In the Operator drop-down, choose from:
    • Equals (will only display objects that exactly match the value entered in the next step)
    • Starts With (will only display objects that start with the value entered in the next step)
    • Ends With (will only display objects that end with the value entered in the next step) 
    • Contains (will only display objects that contain the value entered in the next step) 
  6. In the 'Filter Value' text box, enter the value you require. Note: this may be a drop-down limiting your choice of options
