Definitions for "Layer"
a collection of thematic data of the same type. One or more layers compose a map. (This definition is particular to Arc/Info although it is used in some other GIS packages, this concept may have other names in other GIS software).
A layer refers to a particular kind of information that will be analyzed with the GIS package. Examples are: city centers, landmarks, benchmarks (points); rivers, roads, power lines (arcs); provinces, lakes, city boundaries (polygons). Arcview is able to read two major types of layers: shapefiles and coverages. Each individual item in a layer has a unique identifying number. This allows the geographic unit to be associated with tabular data. GIS should be considered a combination of such geographic and tabular information; it is this relationship that gives GIS its strength as an analytical tool.
An entry in the dictionary which tells Tactician how to interpret a cartographic file. Each layer entry in the dictionary points to at least one cartographic file which can represent points, lines, streets, polygons, or sites on the map. Layers are referenced by overlays.
A conceptual level of network processing functions defined by OSI. Processing is though to take place in layers starting form the physical transmission of data up through to the commands of an end-user.
Layers are commonplace in the hierarchy of telecommunications functions. There are 7 layers defined in the OSI model. For example, layer 3 processes network functions (addressing).
In the OSI reference model, referring to a collection of related network-processing functions that comprise one level of a hierarchy of functions.

Keywords:  dual, pits, dvd, blu, disc
In Blu-ray Disc, data is recorded on a single side of the disc. However, a disc can store two data layers, both at the same side. The read-out or recording laser of the Blu-ray Disc device will first read from or record to one layer, and then re-focuses on the second layer. All this is done automatically without any user interference. A double-layer Blu-ray Disc can store up to 50 GB of data.
A CD has one layer of data. A DVD has a higher capacity than a CD but can also have two sides and each side can have two or more layers of data. Each layer is semi transparent, so the laser can focus beyond the first layer to read the layers below. A single sided-single layer DVD (SS-SL) can store over 2 hours of video. A double sided-dual layer DVD (DS-DL) could store over 8 hours of video. Here are some of the formats that may be found on the market today: -- Single Sided - Single Layer - (DVD-5) - 4.7 GB -- Single Sided - Dual Layer - (DVD-9) - 8.5 GB -- Double Sided - Single Layer - (DVD-10) - 9.4 GB -- Double Sided - Dual Layer - (DVD-18) - 17.0 GB
The plane of a DVD disc on which information is recorded in a pattern of microscopic pits. Each substrate of a disc can contain one or two layers.

Keywords:  plot, agencygp, dwindows, vpf, debrief
A collection of objected plotted on the Debrief Plot. Each layer can be switched on and off individually using the Layer Manager. When written to a plot-file, each layer is stored separately - making it quite easy to copy individual layers out of a plot-file using a text-editor and collating them into a new file. (An example of this would be drawing exercise areas into one session, then moving them all into one layer, save the file to disk, copy this layer to a file of its own, then dropping this file of exercise areas into new files - an example of this is in the VPF best-practice.)

a partition of a part
In image-editing software, a constituent part of an image that can be manipulated independently of other parts.
An image consists of a background upon which are placed various other objects. For example: A blue sky which then has clouds placed on it. Next a green hill is placed on the image followed by trees and then a house and barn. Finally, a few cows are added. Each of these placement events comprise a layer. As can be seen, an image can consist of numerous layers. Layers allow specific areas of an image to be edited without affecting any other data. Objects in one layer can be repositioned, edited, drawn, pasted, and removed without disturbing objects on other layers. In our example, for instance, we could change the clouds from cotton puff to thunder storm types without affecting any other aspect of the image.

a step that allows you to process your video clip some way
In a digital movie-making program such as MovieShop(tm), the term "layer" refers to a single collection of clips that can be viewed on screen at one time. Adding another layer of multiple clips to a movie project will allow you to view both layers on screen at once if desired. For example, Layer #1 consists of video clips and transitions, while Layer #2 consists of a scrolling credit clips. When both layers are viewed simultaneously, the video clips will play and the scrolling credits will show, too. The ability to create layers when producing a video project allows multiple clips to be viewed on screen at the same time. Layers can be used to create a side-by-side or picture-in-picture effect.
