The Public Web Map utilizes map layers to control what details you can see or cannot see at any given time.

By using the Layer Configuration Tool you can customize what layers and information you wish to see on the map.

Why would you use this?

If you want to see map information that is not displayed, or would like to hide map information that is not relevant to you, this help video is for you!

For example you can turn provincial roads on or off, or lakes and streams depending on what you wish the map to convey.
