Using the Overview

The Overview window displays a small map with a larger extent than the current map. The current map's extent is shown in this window with a red rectangle.

  • Display the Overview window by clicking the overview icon Overview toolbar icon in the Toolbar .
  • As you zoom the map in or out, the Overview map's extent may change so it shows an area somewhat larger than the main map.
  • The Overview map may look different from the main map. Layers may be visible at different map scales (zoom levels). Also, if the website uses multiple map services, only one will display in the Overview map.
