So I am creating a layer list using d3 and I have a question about how best let the user select distances.
To give some background, the user will be selecting a geographic layer and will then be asked to select between 4 distances based on how far they think they are from the geographic feature based on a photo (Near, Far, Very Far, Distant). These distances will be the same for all of the layers. Currently, I've thought of two solutions, but I'm not sure which is a better approach or if there is something else entirely.
- The first would be create another level in the layer list and then let the user select from the dropped down options.
- Have a pop up window appear each time a layer is clicked that allows the user to select between the 4 options.
Which makes more sense? My initial thought would be the first option as it's less intrusive, but is there a reason to use a pop up? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
