3. A window called “File Manager” will appear.  There you will be able to choose the files to be associated, and to perform certain functions with them.  These functions are described bellow:


Note: When you add files to be associated to layers, Geoagro GIS makes a copy of them to an internal database, meaning that you will work with those copies instead of the original ones.
