The road map view is probably the most common view used, however it is helpful at times to be able to see different views such as a Satellite/Aerial view to really understand what is located on the map in a specific area.
To change the views use the dialog in the upper right hand corner of the map and click the drop down for Base map. The following base maps are available in GuideK12:
- Road – This is the default and shows basic map features such as roads, lakes, rivers, cities, and other common major landmarks.
- Satellite – This base map option displays an aerial/satellite image for the area displayed.
- Hybrid – The hybrid map option will display a combination of the aerial/satellite image as well as roads and other prominent features.
- Terrain – The terrain map will show you topography of the land good for if you need to see elevation changes.
