- [Voiceover] The key feature of any…geographic information system, whether we're talking about…RHIS or the old style mapping techniques…of using stacked transparent sheets, is the concept…of separating our data collection and organization into…a series of layers that we can manipulate independently.…In the last chapter, we saw that ArcMap brings this concept…into the digital age using this window over here…on the left called the Table of Contents.…In the Table of Contents, the order of your data layers…represent the stacking order that they draw…over here in the data frame.…Items that are on the bottom of the list,…such as our Bounding Box, appear on the bottom…of the stack here.…
Items that are at the top of the list,…for instance our Populated Places,…appear drawn on top.…Now right now, my Graticules layer here…is drawn between the Bounding Box…and my States and Provinces.…That's why they kind of disappear…underneath these land masses.…If I take my Graticules here and click and drag,…I can rearrange their drawing order.…
