Follow the steps below in order to perform the association:

1. Make active the layer in which you want to associate objects by clicking on it.


2. Click on the icon “Layer Files”.


3. A window called “File Manager” will appear where you will be able to choose the files to be associated. There are also several options available explained below.


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