Objects on the Map are organized onto layers. The Layers panel is responsible for adding new layers or removing existing ones, changing the order of layers or adjusting layer parameters.
The Layers panel lists the currently active layers in an order as they appear on the map (top of list is also the top layer on the map). Push the Add new layer button to add a new layer to the beginning of the list. Click on any individual layer to change its properties. To change a layer’s position in the layer order, push the triangular arrows at the bottom of the layer property window.
Details on the currently available layer types are listed below.
Select the source of the map tiles as the base map.
The default installation of Skybrush Live includes only free base maps to avoid licensing issues; contact us if you would like to use a map provider that has licensing restrictions. We can make additional map providers available for you after signing a statement that you understand the licensing restrictions and you are compliant with the licensing requirements of the map provider.
Select a custom WMS, XYZ or TileCache tile server for your map tiles.

Since map terrain color is not known in advance, you can also change UAV trace colors here to enhance visibility.
