Navigation covers the basics of interacting with your map: zooming, panning, and querying objects for more details.

Weather Defender was designed with simplicity in mind. If you have any experience with other zooming/panning applications such as Adobe Acrobat or Google Earth (and even if you don't) you won't have any trouble at all picking up the basic navigation.


To reposition the map view, simply left-click and "drag" the map left/right/up/down then release the left mouse button to force the map to repaint.

Many layers contain icons which are selectable. To activate details for a selectable icon, simply left-click and an information box will appear with details.
