Elements tree

Elements tree is very important in creating advanced maps. It is very important to divide your components logically into structure

For example when you create city streetcar network map you should create such containers

  • Background
    • Land
    • Water
  • Water
  • Streetcar lines
    • Existing
    • Defunct
    • Dismantled
  • Points
    • Streetcar stops
    • Other
  • Labels

Then you can set Background to invisible in interactive map mode (interactive map already contains background), set distinct colors and styles for existing, defunct and dismantled lines and click APPLY TO CONTAINER apply style to all lines in container.

In points you can set that Streetcar stops will be visible on both interactive and static maps, but other points will be only visible in static mode. Labels should be only visible in static mode.
