To avoid obstructing valuable information on the map, you can adjust the opacity of a map layer. For example, a layer that displays weather patterns might block the view of a street name or point of interest on the map.

What you should know

Security Desk users cannot change the opacity of a map layer because it can only be done from Config Tool.


  1. In the Map designer menu, click Map > Layers.
    A dialog box listing all available layers for your map opens.
  2. Point to the layer you want to change, and click the cogwheel ().
  3. In the widget that opens, drag the Opacity slider until you get the desired effect on the map.
  4. Repeat with other layers if necessary.
  5. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
