now being displayed.
Layers Frame The layers frame displays all the layers that the map contains. You can select which
layers you want to be seen by clicking the square box to the left. If there's a checkmark present, the layer
is currently seen on the map. If there's a magnifying glass, a scale is being applied to the layer and will turn on,
when that scale is reached on the map, but can't be seen at the particular scale you're currently at. If you zoom in or out,
those layers would become available.
Active Layer The active layer lets you identify, select, and query features for that particular layer.
Only one layer can be active at a time. You'll know a layer is the active layer if the circle directly left of
the layer name has a black bullet in it (see below).
Identifying a feature Before you can identify a feature, you need to make sure the correct active layer
is selected. For example, if you want to identify a particular parcel, make sure the Assessor Parcel layer is turned on
and active. You can confirm this by looking at the legend to pick out the layer. Once the active layer is selected,
use the toolbar to pick out the identify tool. You can then move the mouse over the parcel you want to identify and
left click that feature. The results will appear in the identify frame in a table.
