Has anyone ever counted their GIS layers? If so, how?
One option is to use Windows Explorer and search for *.shp (and other GIS extensions) and looking at the count in the bottom of the results window.
Are there any other methods/tools?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Or there is another way around that you can do is to go to the folder where the files you want to look for such as shapefiles, excel or so on...
Look at number 3 and see the list under the View..change it to "Details" because it will give you all the deteails about the files and show you the columns. When you see "Type" there is a down arrow that will give you the list to choose from to display...
That is what I always do is to select one and delete anything you don't need not only for gis but in general...
