Use the Information Tool - Land Matters maps are geographic representations of many different types of data. Multiple data layers on each map provide our users with very detailed and sometimes very complex information. To be sure that data is presented in a clear manner, we keep the bulk of the information BEHIND the MAP. Use the Information Tool to access all available information at the point of your Click on the map. If you use no other tool on a Land Matters Map. . . Use the Information Tool.
Map Speed - Land Matters currently streams base maps from 3rd party servers. This may cause your map to load slower than you would like. To avoid the wait, turn off the base layers until you have zoomed into your area of interest on the map. Then turn on the base layer you would like to see. (aerial imagery, topos or World Street Map) As Land Matters grows we will be able to address this issue by hosting our own base layers.
