LDWF Interactive Map Instructions
LDWF’s ARcGIS maps provide a wealth of information on a single map interface. We have attempted to predefine the most widely used maps and have provided links to those above.
If you would like to customize any of these maps for your own purpose, we have assembled a few instructions below. We encourage you to use any of the features available to better understand our fisheries.
- To access additional map components (layers) click on ‘Content’ at the top right, then ‘Fisheries Web Map’. There will be a list of layer categories (‘General’, ‘DHH’, ‘Oyster’, ‘Shrimp’ and ‘Trip Tickets’). Click on any of these words to turn on the features that you would like visible on your map by clicking the check box next to each.
- Use the + and – button to zoom in and out. In many cases the layer you turned on won’t be visible until you zoom out.
- Click on the word ‘Legend’ to understand what the colors of each boundary designate.
- To change the background of the map, choose ‘Basemap’ and select a new map type.
