How to use the Locate Address / XY Coordinates Map Tool

 

The tools used by the ‘Locate Address / XY Coordinates’ map tool to locate an address and to pin point a location using the X Y

Coordinates in the map view are as follows:

 

 Locate Address – This icon allows the user to search for a specific address and locate it in the map view. As an example the

Address would be entered as 1234 Eagle Lake Rd.

 

 Locate XY Coordinates – This icon allows the user to enter an X and Y coordinate and locate the position in the map view.

 

 Results – When an address or an X and Y coordinate is located, a results screen is displayed in the ‘Locate Address / XY Coordinates’

map tool.  This icon allows the user to switch from the results screen to either the ‘Locate Address’ or ‘X Y Coordinates’ screen.

Note: Only after performing a search will the ‘Results’ screen have data.

 

 Minimize – This icon allows the user to minimize the ‘Locate Address / XY Coordinates’ map tool. To maximize or reopen the map

 tool, simply select the thumb tack   of the minimized tool.
