Basemap Layers

Only one basemap layer can be selected at a time

ESRI Imagery Firefly

Firefly imagery is desaturated, making it easier to view. Additionally, it is typically more up to date imagery

ESRI Imagery Clarity

Clarity imagery is a standard imagery basemap layer

Overlay Layers

Each of the overlay layers can be toggled on and off by the user by switching the overlay on and off

Overlay layering

Overlays are stacked onto the map. This means if you turn off a layer and then turn it back on, it may end up covering another overlay. This can be seen if the MOA overlays are turned off and then back on, the MOA boundaries can cover Restricted Area boundaries. This can be rectified by then turning the Restricted Area boundaries off and on again.
