On the right side of the window is the Layers/Legend area. Each folder contains a number of map layers you can turn on and off. Click on a folder, see what layers it contains. Click on the white square to the left of a layer to turn it on. Every time you turn on or off a layer you must click the REFRESH button to see it on the map.
In order to use the Identify, Find & Address buttons/tools, you have to make the layer you are interested in active. Click on the name of the layer to make it the active layer (a light blue highlight appears around the layer name). Only one layer at a time can be the active layer.
As you zoom in, more layers appear on the map and on the legend. Parcels, local roads, schools, and parks layers do not appear on the map until the user zooms in quite close.
In order to see the description of a committed crime along with the date and time it was committed (data displayed is for 12 months of crime incidents): Click on the white square to the left of a layer to turn it on then click on the 'Refresh Map' button to see it on the map. Now click on the name of the layer to make it active, next click on the 'Identify button', and finally click on the crime point on the map to see the description.
