Getting Started

The Web Mapping Application enables you to explore a map and find information useful to you.

How it works

The Web Mapping Application page has three main parts: Layout of the webGIS application

Working with the Console

You can hide and then show the Console as needed. Click the hatch/bar just to the left of the map to hide the Console, or drag to the desired width. Click the hatch/bar again to show the Console.

You can resize the area used by the Console by clicking and dragging the divider between the Console and the Map. This allows more room to view either area as you work.

You can switch between sections as needed. Click on a tab to change the Console section:

Working with moveable elements

Some elements, such as the wuery data, results and print windows, may be moved around the page, collapsed and closed. You can arrange these elements to suit your own work.

To move elements, click and hold with the left mouse button on the title bar of the element. As you hover over the element's title bar, the cursor changes to a four-way arrow, indicating you can move it by clicking and dragging.

Drag the element to the position you want, then release the mouse button.

To collapse the element, just double click the title bar. The element window collapses to its title bar. To restore it to normal view, double click the title bar again.

Close a moveable window by clicking the close button it its upper right corner. Most such windows may be re-opened from the appropriate location. For example, the Measure and Magnifier windows may be re-opened from the Toolbar.

Resizing moveable elements

All element windows can be resized to show more or less area. To resize, move the mouse over the right lower hatched edge of the element window until you see the cursor change to a double arrow. Hold the mouse down and drag the window edge to resize it, then release.
