Vector tile can be added to the map in BlueGIS. There are two ways to access the add vector tile panel. The first way is the 'Add Vector Tile' option under the 'Add Map Service', in the left menu.

2. Previous Vector Tile Layers

There are 3 main menus in the add vector tile panel. There is a 'History' button under the third main menu. In this menu, vector tile layers added to the map are saved. Thus, you can easily add a vector tile layer you added before to the map without having to re-enter the parameters.

Add Vector Tile

The layer we added in the first step is now displayed in history. It is enough to scroll the box to add it back to the map. If desired, easily remove the layer from history with the "Delete" button.

Add Vector Tile

When the button is selected, the vector tile layer is automatically added to the map again.
