View multiple information layers on a map

To enable operators to view multiple layers simultaneously, the Map screen includes a Layers (The Layers icon) icon. Selecting layers from this list adds them to the map for informational purposes: they can be viewed, but not clicked. In contrast, the Select Predefined Location button (available only on the publisher map) allows operators to select a location from a single layer at any given time.
  1. Open the map.
  2. In the bottom left corner of the screen, click The Layers icon.
  3. Select the layers you want to view from the
    Show Layers
  4. Click the check box next to any of the
    Show Layers
    items to see it displayed on the map. The difference between selecting a predefined location in the
    Select Predefined Locations
    drop-down list and doing so in the Show Layers panel is that the location is not interactive when selected in the Layers panel. This non-clickable status is indicated by the use of lighter shading and dotted lines around the edges of the locations, as shown on the right in the following image:

    Custom locations are not listed on the Show Layers panel.
If more than one object exists at or is very close to the same location, click The Forward button to see the details of the next object.
