Layer Manager

The Layer Manager is mainly used to add CHaMP layers to the map with the correct symbology applied. Through this the user can view different CHaMP datasets (e.g. Thalweg, DEM, Control Points, etc.) that may not normally be placed on the map from running a tool alone. In addition to this layers can be removed from the map and a user can get an idea of where they are at in the overall workflow based on what can be accessed through the Layer Manager.


  • A valid Survey GDB must be opened with the CHaMP Topo Toolbar to activate the Layer Manager button.


  1. Open the Layer Manager by clicking the button on the far left of the CHaMP Topo Toolbar, highlighted in a red box below in the image below.
  2. Select the layers to add to the map by checking or unchecking their boxes.
  3. Click Update Table of Contents to add the checked layers to the map.


The Layer Manager user interface is shown in the image below and the different features are detailed.


Below is a video tutorial exploring how to use the functionality of the Layer Manager.
