Map

The Map page in Manager's viewer configuration area has settings that allow you to extend or restrict the scale range of the map and configure the map's coordinate system.

Open the Map Page

To open an HTML5 viewer's Map page in Manager:

  1. In Geocortex Essentials Manager, edit the viewer that you want to configure—edit the site that the viewer belongs to, click Viewers in the side panel, and then click the Edit icon beside the viewer.

  2. In the side panel, click Map.

Scale Range Settings

The Override Scale settings enable you to override the default scale range of the map.

By default, the primary map service determines the scale range of the map. The map's Zoom control has the same range as the map's primary map service. Each level of detail in the primary map service is one zoom level in the Zoom control. Users cannot zoom in closer than the primary map service's minimum scale, or zoom out farther than the primary map service's maximum scale.

A site may contain a service, often a dynamic service, with a larger scale range than the primary map service. In this case, users will not be able to see the entire map service—they can only see the part that lies within the primary map service's scale range. The Override Scale settings enable you to extend the map's scale range so users can see the parts of the map service that lie outside the primary map service's scale range.

You can also use the Override Scale settings to restrict the map's scale range.

The scale range settings are:

Map Coordinate Systems Settings

The Map Coordinate Systems settings allow you to control how the map coordinates are displayed.

The map coordinates show the position of the mouse pointer. By default, the coordinates appear at the bottom left of the map, beside the scale bar:
