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.
The zoom control is located below the layer control. The user can zoom the map in multiple ways: 1. Utilizing the zoom control 1. Using mouse scroll 1. Double clicking the map

The utility tools are located below the zoom control. They can be toggled by clicking on the tool to activate it. Only one tool can be active at one time.
