Map Business Online comes with Custom map template hosting these basic map layers:
States, Counties, and ZIP codes. These are default map layers and you can add other
layers to a map such as US cities, US highways, Census tracts, 3-digit ZIP codes,
Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA), City limits, and School Districts. More map
layers will be added to Map Business Online in near future including lakes and rivers.
- To add map layers to a map simply click ‘Add map layers’ icon on Map Business Online
- In ‘Add map layers’ dialog select map layers you are interested in. Hold shift key
to select multiple map layers. Click ‘Add to map’ button.
- Map Business Online may need to load map layers and that loading takes some time.
Once map layers are loaded they are displayed on your map.
- You can remove map layers you have added. Just go to Map & Data window (if it’s
not open click Map & Data vertical button on the left side), move mouse over map
layer you want to remove, and click remove button.
