- Create PDF reports for profiles and map

- Create Profiles

2 - Data Manager

Visualize Data

This button show/hide data on the map. When hovering the cursor over this button, that data flashes within the map window.

This button show/hide data for profiles and in the 3D Window. Data must be placed in a Group before they can be shown on profiles or in the 3D Window.

Zoom to layer

This button zooms to the data layer within the map or the 3D window.

Only Data in Extent

This button hides all data not located in your current map extent.

Groups tab
Activiate the Groups, to see the groups of data in the portal. Click the button to show your data for profiles and to view in the 3D window. You can expan or collapse the group by clicking on the group name.

Only the data in the activated group can be visuzlized on profiles and 3D. You can only show data from one group at the time on profiles and in 3D. You can have the same data in multiple groups.

You have the option to zoom to the group, toggle all layers to the map and/or toggle all layers active in 3D / Profile.

Data tab
When activating the 'Data' tap, you can see all data in your GeoCloud portal, regardless of which group the data is placed in. The data is divided into GeoClouds predefined data categories. You can open each data category and show data individually or you can show all data within a single data category at once. The number shown at each data category reflects the amount of data within your present map extent and the total amount of data. When clicking on a data category, you can expand or collapse the category.

In the Data tap, you can't use the profile or 3D window functionality. The data must be in a Group and have the Groups tap active.

The last data category is used to add a temporary WMS to your project. The WMS data and connection will disappear when you log off the GeoCloud portal. For a permanent WMS connection, read the WMSs page.

The predefined GeoCloud data categories:
- Geophysical Surveys (Geophysical AEM surveys; flight lines shown as point data)
- 2D Grids (shown as maps)
- 3D Grids (shown as 2d grid slices/maps)
- Boreholes (shown as points)
- Points (point observations shown as points)
- Shapefiles (various)
- WMSs (various)
- Point Clouds (point cloud formats shown as points)
- WMS Temporary (Various, data will disappear after logging off)
