How to use our maps

Sorry, our online maps  aren’t working on iOS devices at the moment.

Location search

location search

To look for a location enter the full or part of an address into the location search bar. The more you type in the more refined the search will be.

When you type in the information the map will suggest a number of locations. Once you select one of the search results the map will automatically zoom in on that location.

Map window

As well as using the location search to find a site on the map, you can also pan around and zoom in yourself.

To zoom in and out you can use the scroll function on your mouse, phone or tablet, or you can use the plus and minus buttons in the top left hand corner of the map.

To pan around a map you can click and drag or you can use the compass icon in the top left hand corner.

Map legend

Some of our maps have a legend which displays the information you can view on the map. You can use this to turn data on and off.

Once data is visible on the map you can click on it to reveal more information at that location, this will be displayed in a pop up box.
