About Search

The Search box allows you to search for features on the map. For example, a particular address, park, school, building, etc. Of course, the information that you can search for on a particular map depends on the type of map.

When you type a word into the Search box and click the Search icon , the results start to display in The Results List immediately, even though the search is continuing in the background. More items display in the Results List as they are found. When all the items are displayed, each type of feature is listed by ID and name with an identifying icon to make it easy to identify feature types.

When you are searching a map with more than one layer, the results of the search are grouped by layer in The Results List, for example, Schools information will be following by Park information if they are on different layers.

Not all layers are always included in a search:
