Aggregation Layer Builder V1.0
Aggregation Builder Tool
Aggregation layers are geographic areas representing loss information aggregated asset features. These areas are spatially represented as vector data, usually polygon features.
RiskScape software provides an "Aggregation Builder Tool" that allows software users to upload and save ESRI Shapefile (.shp) to the repository for use as aggregation layers to output RiskScape loss model scenario results.
Build an Aggregation Layer
Open the Aggregation Builder Tool by clicking on the 'Aggregation builder tool' icon on the menu bar.
Browse to and open an ESRI Shapefile (.shp) to upload as an aggregation layer. Select a field name from the shapefile table using the dropdown box.
Select the coordinate system used in your selected ESRI shapefile and click “OK”
Select fields from the shapefile table to include in the aggregation layer. At least one field must be selected.
Name the fields appropriately
Name the aggregation layer and complete the relevant metadata fields.
Click continue to save the aggregation layer to local repository.
The saved aggregation layer will appear in the 'Analysis' tab side panel and local repository.
