Map Tools

The Map Tools are designed to help you navigate in and around the map and to perform other specific tasks.

The Select tool allows the user to dynamically select sites. To use the Select tool, click on the tool and then click on a property on the map. Multiple properties can be selected by clicking and dragging a box around several properties.

The Zoom In and Zoom Out tools show more or less detail in a specified area. To use the Zoom In feature, click on this tool and then click on the map view. Wherever you click will be centered in the map window and made larger. To zoom in on a specific area, click and drag around that area and it will center and zoom in on that area. To use the Zoom Out tool, click on the tool and then click on the map. Wherever you click will be centered in the map window and made smaller.

To move the map display around in the map area, click on the Pan tool and then click and drag the map display.

By clicking on the Zoom Extent tool, the map display zooms out to its smallest extent--the view of the entire state.

The Zoom Previous tool returns the map display to the previous extent. (Note: there is only one previous extent stored in history.)

The Clear Selection tool can be used to deselect all selected properties whether they were selected by using the Select tool or through a query.
