Using Super Templates
To use a Super Template, you create a new, empty analysis and then load the template with a few clicks.
Depending on the size of the analysis it may take a bit, but as you watch all the layers, attributes, indicators, assumptions, charts, scenarios, Saved Views, and so on will be automatically created.
After that, all that’s left is loading new data and running an update (which again might take a while the first time through).
Super Templates save both your analytics and your presentation, and we encourage you to pay attention to both.
Saved Views, for example, are very helpful.
When making them for Super Templates, you may wish to use the handy Zoom to Layer Extent feature (it’s a checkbox on the Saved Views Properties form).
This will ensure that Saved Views have an appropriate map extent even when they’re being applied in a different location.
For loading the data, Version 5.1 includes a valuable new tool called Load Data. It’s described in a separate article.
Once the Super Template’s analysis is loaded, it works like any other analysis.
You are free to work with it normally, including making any changes you wish.
