The explore tool combines navigation and identification into a single tool. Clicking and dragging pans the map around, and clicking a feature displays information from the database.
- [Instructor] Now that our project has started,…it's probably a good idea to get a feel…for navigating around the map.…The view I have on the screen right now…is great for getting an overview of North America,…but I'd like to zoom in to give different areas…a closer look, and also zoom out…to get a global perspective.…To do this, we'll take a look at the map tap on the ribbon,…and specifically focus our attention…on the tools in the navigate group.…The first tool is the explore tool.…The explore tool combines navigation and identification…into a single tool.…If you're familiar with the identify tool in ArcMap,…you'll know that clicking on a feature in the map…will bring up a window that displays attributes.…
Now, at this point, we don't have any data.…We only have this background base map image.…So I'll come back to the identification functionality…later on in the course.…What we can do with the explore tool, though,…is click and drag around on the map…to pan it around to different locations.…If you click and drag up, you'll move the map northward.…
