1.6. Demo projects

These projects showcase the capabilities of NextGIS Web, allowing you to get acquainted with its features. If you’ve set up a Web GIS and wish to test the platform but don’t know where to begin, try out the demo projects.

To access demo projects go to the main page of your Web GIS and log in as the administrator. You can open the demo projects page in one of two ways:

  • From the actions pane on the right

  • Using the button below the list of Web GIS resources

When you clone a demo project, it is yours to edit, reset or delete (see Pic. 1.24.).
