Searching Maps Using Find's Zip Code and Neighborhood Features.

Follow

Find Map Layers overlay the basic map. Applying a Layer will display information such as neighborhood names, school districts, amenities and more. You can expand the Layers menu to view the Layers options.

You can show or hide any layer by checking its corresponding box. For example, checking the Neighborhood Layer displays all city-assigned neighborhoods; Unchecking or hiding the layer removes the Neighborhood display.

Tip: By default, Tiles and Amenities are inactive when you open a map, however Neighborhoods will display if you enabled them during your last session.

To show or hide a layer:

  1. On the left side of the map, click Layer.
  2. Click to select the check boxes beside each Layer to show; clear the check boxes beside each Layer to hide.
  3. The map updates immediately, turning the appropriate layer off or on.
  4. Click the Layers sub-tab again to collapse the sub-tab and hide the Layers menu.
