3 Page 3 of 48 Introduction In this module you will learn about GeoView's: Screen Layout Information Panel and Map Layers Toolbars Getting Around Maps and Data Sources Tasks Analysis How to navigate the map How to use Simple Query How to use Identify How to use Annotations How to create a Printable Map How to Export a Map Note: As this course demonstrates the use of the GeoView tool, the data in some instances may not portray the actual Crown or Freehold ownership.

4 Page 4 of 48 Screen Layout The GeoView screen display has three main sections: Toolbar Area Information Panel Map Window The Toolbar Area contains numerous tools that are used to move around the map, find or search information on the map, print the map, etc. These tools are categorized into high-level groups: Getting Around, Maps and Data Sources, Tasks and Analysis. The Information Panel shows different kinds of information when you interact with the map. For example, this panel displays the Map Layers where you can select different layers to hide or show on the map. The Map View shows the map window where you can interact with the map by zooming, panning, annotating or right-clicking to get more information. 2. Information Panel 3. Map View 1. Toolbar Area

5 Page 5 of 48 Map Layers control the display of the Map Layers List. You can check or uncheck the map layers according to your requirement. You can also control the visibility and transparency of the map using the sliders. Information Panel and Map Layers

6 Page 6 of 48 The Information Panel display consists of a Layer Group and Layer Names. When the Layer Group is expanded, the Layer Names will be visible. You can check/uncheck the Layer Group and Layer Names to control visibility in the map. The display of the Layer Group will override the display of the Layer Names. Information Panel and Map Layers – Layer Group and Layer Name Layer Group Layer Names

8 Page 8 of 48 Toolbars The toolbar contains many of the tools you use to move around, zoom in and out, as well as to find and manipulate the information that is stored in the map. The toolbar is divided into Tabs that group tools into high-level functions for example, Navigation (getting around), Maps & Data Sources, Tasks, and Analysis. Each tab is divided into Sections by function for example, For the Getting Around Tab, there are Navigation Tools, Location Info, Information & Actions, and Help.

10 Page 10 of 48 Use these tools:To: Return to the extent (scale) that the map was at when it opened Show the full extent of the current map The map is zoomed back to the previous extent The map is zoomed forward to the next extent (previous view of the map) Toolbar Tab - Getting Around (Continued)

11 Page 11 of 48 Toolbar Tab - Getting Around (Continued) Use these tools:To: Identify information at the point on the map that is clicked. Changing the scale ratio will adjust the map image. Choose between pre-defined scale or type in a scale. Create and navigate to a previously created bookmark. To add a bookmark for the current extent, click the plus +, enter a name, and then click OK.
