Ability to save map layers as a preset group

    That's a great idea. I definitely use specific groups of map layers for skiing and a different group for cycling or hiking. And yes, the number of layers can be overwhelming and it would be great for Gaia to make some default groups of map layers. Gaia Topo, US Shaded Relief, and Slope is great for backcountry skiing, for example.

    I believe this would be the same or similar as the OP stated as "Saved as a Group", but when we travel in the Pacific Northwest, I use a selection of 4 or 5 maps and layers that are different then say when we are in SE Utah, or in British Columbia. It would be extremely useful to be able to group a selection of maps and name that group, (i.e. PNW or SE Utah, BC, etc..) to be pulled up at any given time, or even shared. When I return to an area that we hadn't been to for awhile, it takes some time to explore the maps to find that perfect selection again.

    Now that Gaia is continuing to add many useful layers, we REALLY need this feature.

    I have multiple use groups:

    • Backcountry ski (Topo layer, shaded relief, Slope, satellite)
    • 4x4 exploring (USGS topo, USFS topo, shaded relief, USFS MVUM, Satellite, et al)
    • Hiking (Topo, shaded relief, OSM, custom map sources I have added)
    • General exploring (assorted layers I turn on/off)

    Changing between these is a pain, especially when I have to scroll through a list of dozens of available/enabled layers and THEN have to change the opacity on each one...

    I concur.  This would be an awesome addition.
