Map Help

The map page is split into three main functional areas.
The operation of each area is explained in detail below:-

Navigation - Themes - Traffic News

Disabled panning button A disabled button indicates there is no map available in this direction.

To zoom in to a more detailed map, move the mouse pointer over the area you want to zoom into.

If the mouse pointer changes and a tip box appears (as shown in the example below), then clicking will zoom into a more detailed map.

Theme Selection The information displayed on the maps can be changed by selecting a combination of different 'Themes'.

To add or remove a different information, select the box to the left of the name on the right hand side of the page. Once the desired options have been selected press the 'Refresh' button to update the map.

If the information is not available on the current map then the name will be greyed out and the tick box can not be changed (even if the box is ticked). Some maps may be purely for navigation to the area of interest and not allow selection of any of the information.
