Use this method to build a new layer (prepare storage). Depending on the layer type, different files are created or used. For GIS_LayerSHP there are .shp and .dbf files. GIS_LayerSQLAbstract uses .ttkls files.

To add a new layer to the viewer, simply create a layer, use Build method with proper params, fill needed layer properties, and use the viewer Add method.


Here is a simple procedure to add a new layer to the viewer.
