Operational Layers are all of the layers above the Basemap layer(s). The Layer List Widget shows the Operational Layers that are available on the map and allows you to turn them on or off. Expanding a layer shows its symbology on the map. The mini-menu (at the right edge of the widget) lets you zoom to a layer, adjust its transparency, move the layer up or down the list, and link to its description.
The Legend Widget shows the symbology of the operational layers that are visible.
Select the Area, Distance, or Location tool from the Measure Widget. Draw a polygon, line, or point on the map. The resulting area, length, or coordinates will be shown on the widget. You can change the area units, length units, and coordinate system on the widget.
The Print Widget will create a print ready document in one of the following formats. The document will appear in a new tab or a new window, depending on your browser and its settings.

You can choose from the following file types for your print map:
  • PDF
  • JPG
  • PNG8
  • PNG32
  • GIF
  • EPS

The print ready document can be formatted and scaled to the following layouts:

  • A3 Landscape
  • A3 Portrait
  • Map Only (no title block or border)
Advanced Options
The print scale can be adjusted to either preserve the current scale or the current map extent. A desired scale can also be forced by entering any scale value in the box.

The Author, Copyright and Legend options are located here to adjust before generating a print map

The Map Only size can be adjusted by setting a pixel height and width in the advanced options

The Print quality (dots per inch, or DPI) can also be set in the Advanced dropdown. As the resolution increases, the time required to generate the map and the size of the map file also increases.
