Why can’t I see a layer in the map view even though it is turned on and I’ve zoomed to the layer?

  1. Double check that there isn’t another layer overlaying and thus obscuring the layer you want to see in the map view. Remember that layers are displayed in the map view in the order that they are listed in the Layers panel - layers listed at the top in the Layers panel show up on top in the map view. You can either turn off any layer that might be obscuring the layer you wish to see by unchecking it in the Layers panel, or rearrange the order of layers by clicking and dragging them up or down in the Layers panel.
  2. Some QGreenland data layers are only visible at a specific map scale (see QGreenland User Guide section 4.3.1: Scale-dependent rendering for more information). Try zooming in.
