The Layers menu allows you to customize your map to show only the information you want.
The Layers Menu is divided into 2 sub-menus: My Layers and Layer Library:
- Layers currently available for viewing. Only layers in this menu can be enabled for viewing on the map.
- Layers that are currently not available for viewing. Layers in this menu must be added to the My Layers menu before they can be enabled.
Both My Layers and the Layer Library are organized into sections:
- Each state has it's own section.
- Hunt - Hunting specialty layers, like the current and historic wildfires, timbercuts, etc.
- Trails & Rec - Trail maps and statistics, and general outdoor recreation information.
- Water - Nautical charts, Great Lakes Bathymetry, and River Stage Forecasts.
Customizing Your Map Using the My Layers Menu
