North American Overlay Mapping

Pin Identify

Click 'Tools' > 'Pin Identify' to access this tool. It has two uses; to provide further information about all of the Map-Pins currently selected, and to provide an easy way to jump to the correct map that a pin is located on.

Three types of information are provided for each pin:

  1. The State or Province that a pin is located in.
  2. The 'Type' of a pin; in other words, the category name used to first select it. This could have various values, for instance State/Prov Capital, Major/Minor City, County/Municipal Region, Area Code, IOTA Ref, Mountain, User List, Map Click, Home Position, Grid Locator, Entered Position, etc.
  3. The 'Location'; its value loaded when a position is selected from one of the pre-defined lists on the Map Navigation page. A pin added by hand will have the Location set to 'unknown'.

To jump to the correct map that pin is located on, simply click the colored spot representing the Map Pin of your choice.
