When creating a project in GeoCue there is an option on the Project Creation Dialog to Auto Create Layers. The layers that are auto created can be selected within Environment Builder.
Within Environment Builder go to Environments and specify the Environment that needs to have layers auto created when a project is created. In the example below it is the “LIDAR Project Setup and Processing” environment. Click Modify Group and check the Auto Create option for each layer type to be created upon project formation. Here you can also set the number of layers for each supported layer type and a base name.
