Map Browser Window
The Map Browser opens in a new window which is divided into six parts:
Within the Header, you can close the Map Browser, bring up the Help screen, and switch to the French version of the Map Browser.
The Main Map Frame is where the interactive map is displayed. Beside it is the Information Frame which displays information about the Map Browser as well as information and options related to the map you are creating and/or working within.
Above the Main Map Frame and Information Frame are the Tab Bar and the Tool Bar where the Map Browser Utilities are found. Map Browser Utilities allow you to access information about the Map Browser, to find a specific location, to add and change information to your map, to view land use information associated with your map, and to store, print and send maps.
The Status Bar at the bottom of the Map Browser Window displays the map scale and the map tool you are working with.
