Loading Feature Layers

TerraExplorer Pro constructs a feature layer as a layer object, which is then displayed in the Project Tree. A layer object enables you to perform layer level operations by using the property sheet page to set the appearance and behaviors of the geographic objects contained within the layer.

First, you load the layers from feature files or servers and then you set the layer appearance and parameters in the property sheet page and the Feature Layer tab on the Ribbon.
