Step 1: Click on the Coordinate Picker, the Length measure icon, or the Area Measure icon
Step 2a: For coordinates of a point, click on the map and the coordinates will show in a window. You may switch between coordinates types (State Plane and Lat/Long) by clicking on the arrow icon at the bottom of the coordinate window.
Step 2b: For length measures, click a starting point and then click a second point, and then as many other points as desired, then double click to end the measurement. The measurement shows in a pop up window which allows the measurement units to be switched.
Step 2c: For area measures, click a starting point and then click a second point, and then as many other points as desired, then double click to end the measurement. The area defined by your clicks will be filled in and the area measurement shows in a pop up window which allows the measurement units to be switched.
Step 3: To clear measurements click the “X” icon.

Create Share Link tool creates a URL that captures the current map state (scale and extent, layers turned on, etc.). You may send this link to others to paste into web browsers so that they can have the same view of the map as you.
After opening the Select Features Tool:
Step 1: Click on the Add/remove features icon.
Step 2: Click on features on the map. By default, Buildings, Parking Lots, and UA Site Points are selectable. Several other layers are selectable once they are turned on within the TOC. This Includes:
•Outdoor Destinations / Campus Open Spaces
•Campus Development Projects
•Project Web Cams
You may de-select a feature by clicking on it a second time.
Step 3: To stop selecting features, click the Stop Modifying Selections icon. Selected features will remain selected even if you close the Tools Panel, zoom in, or out, etc., but you will no longer be able to select/de-select features.
Step 4: To deselect all features, click the Delete All Selections icon.
Basic search is performed on Buildings, Major Athletic Sites, UA Sites Statewide, Parking Lots, Outdoor Destinations.
Refine Your Search allows you to select additional categories of data to search, including the basic search layers if you choose.
When you click on the Query tab it provides an option to Choose a Layer (green box). Click on the box and choose a layer from the drop down list.
Once you’ve selected a layer, the layer name will be placed in the green box.
Also, once the selected layer name is in the first green box, three additional green boxes appear for you to make selections from. The Select a Field box provides a list of available data columns to choose from which come from the selected layer. The Operator box provides a choice of operators that define how to filter the data, such as =, <, >. The Value box provides a list of data values that are included in the Field you selected.
Once you’ve selected a Field, Operator, and Value, these selections are shown on the green boxes. In the example below, the layer Buildings was selected, along with the Field BuildingUse, the Operator =, and the Value UA Residence Halls.
Once you’ve make the selections above, press the blue box with the arrow and the query string will then be placed in the white box below.
Once the query string has been added to the white box, press the blue Query box, at which point the query will be executed and the results of the query will show in a new window at the bottom of the map
In addition to a tabular listing of the query results in the bottom window, the results are highlighted in green on the map as well.
If you click on one of the rows in the results window, that row will be highlighted in darker green and the corresponding feature will be highlighted on the map as well.
Once your created an initial query, you may then refine the same query with additional fields/values from the same layer. To start, press the “OFF” button.
After pressing the “OFF” button, it becomes blue and reads “ADD”.
Once the button reads “ADD”, you may select another field, operator, and value. In addition to these parameters, you need to also make a choice from the green box labled “Connecting”. This defines how the original and new query statements should be appended together (e.g. AND, OR, NOT). Note that you are only given the choice to refine queries on a single map layer.
Once you’ve selected a Field/Operator/Value/Connector for your refined query, press the blue arrow button, and the new query parameters will be appended to your original query parameters in the white box.
Once the new parameters are appended, press the blue query button to execute the query. You may append additional query statements to the prior ones using the same method.
Some layers are only available to be turned at certain scale levels – If a layer is “greyed out” try zooming in farther.
Informational flyout windows are provided when some features are clicked on. Buildings and Parking Lot flyouts are always available, while others are only available when the TOC layer is turned on.
Clickable layers combine or overlap each other as you turn them on and off. If something doesn’t look right, check the layer list to see if something is turned on that shouldn't be - or vice versa.
