There is a setting when you customize a map that says:
Limit display of contents to city boundaries

This is supposed to take a shapefile that contains e.g. 1000 power plants of the entire world, and if you select this and you open the map for e.g. a single city, then it shows only a "slice" of that shapefile by demonstrating only those plants that are located within the boundaries of the city.

However, from all that I can see this is just a setting that was listed in the front-end but it does absolutely nothing! So it's time to make that functional...

Discussion and updates

New task was created

Task was assigned to Paul Hoekman

This is now working. Attached the BEFORE and AFTER shots. The master map of the city (or whatever area) takes the official boundaries defined for that reference space and then crops the shapefile accordingly.
