Custom Color Area (Overlay)
The Custom Color Area overlay is an overlay which is used for indicating different areas in the same overlay. When added to a project, it can be activated by selecting the corresponding icon on the minimap. When activated, it displays one or more areas for which a separate color and name can be set up. This can be used to indicate specific areas in one overlay that can not be visualized in any other overlay, for instance because the data is not readily available, or the combination of areas is not possible otherwise.
This color indicates constructions of (one of) the specified function(s).
This color indicates all areas where no construction of the specified function(s) exist. This can be because there is no construction, or a construction of a different function, in that location.
Configuring the overlay
By default, the overlay does not display any relevant information. The areas of this overlay must be configured first, by adding and drawing them in on the project area and selecting a suitable color.

Naming the custom area(s)
