How To Use Base Maps

In yey’maps, you have the option to select different background maps to enhance your map display. To do this, locate the small globe symbol situated at the top right corner of the map window. By clicking on it, you can access various background map options that each show different style maps, including an aerial photo sourced from Microsoft Bing Maps.

Furthermore, an aerial photo from the state surveying organization, provided by the State Office for Geoinformation and Land Development (LGL), is accessible through the layer list within the table of contents.

People commonly refer to the aerial photo from the state surveying organization as FDOP, which stands for Color Digital Orthophoto.

*Please note that the FDOP is only visible once you reach a certain zoom level. To activate the FDOP, you need to first zoom in on the map using the mouse wheel to enlarge it.*
