Maps: Parametrized LayerΒΆ

Build a model of a parametrized layer in a wholespace. If you want to build a model of a parametrized layer in a halfspace, also use Maps.InjectActiveCell.

The model is

m = [
    'background physical property value',
    'layer physical property value',
    'layer center',
    'layer thickness'
