Frequently asked questions and Troubleshooting

I moved a map element (Tools, Results, etc.) off the screen. How can I get it back?

If you accidentally move an element outside the visible window, you may move it back by using the browser's scrollbars to scroll the window until the element is visible, then drag it back to the main area of the window.

In Results from an identify or query, when I check a feature to highlight it on the map, the feature does not get highlighted.

The administrator of the site may have disabled this ability. If the map uses ArcIMS software and returning geometry is disabled, then the website won't highlight features.
