Create Layer Files as a Pipeline Step

This adds the Create Layer Files processing task to a pipeline step, where it creates layer files in the data/meta folder if layer files are not already present. Users can then open various GIS formats in ArcMap (Open in ArcMap) directly from Voyager without having to download data locally.

  1. Open the Locations page and click the Edit icon next to the location to which you want to add the pipeline step.
  2. Select the Pipeline tab and un-check Use Default Pipeline Configuration
  3. Select the First Steps option and click Add


  4. Select create_lyr_post_step from the drop-down menu and click Add
  5. Click Save

Usage Notes
