Now that you have a basic understanding of the core functions of Weather Defender, its time to personalize your map by adding geographic layers and reference points.

This tutorial assumes you have completed the Getting Started Tutorial.



Step 1
To keep the display simple, turn off any active weather layers in the Map Layers window.

Step 2
Reposition your map so your Home icon is centered on screen. If you do not have a Home icon anywhere on the map, use the Set Home tool from the Map Tab toolbar to set it.

Tip
You may click Preset > Center Home on the toolbar to automatically center your home location on screen.




Step 3
Zoom the map to about 1:100 (does not have to be exact) as indicated in the lower-right of your status bar.

Note: The zoom scale identifies the number of pixels per degree. 1:100 means the current zoom displays 100 pixels for every latitudinal/longitudinal degree.




Step 4


Congratulations!

Now your map should display a small regional view of your location. Its time to start adding layers.
