Toolbar

The toolbar provides various functions to manipulate the scenario. Hovering over any of the buttons will display a tooltip describing what the button does.

Coordinate Search

Use the search container to enter coordinates (MGRS or Lat/Long) or a Navigational Identifier. Press Enter to submit the search. The search bar can also accept offsets from a coordinate or point in the format of {point-name} {heading}/{range}.

Offset

Space is not required, however the / character is required to set the offset. The heading must be 3 digits long. The range can be any number of digits to included decimals.

Example: KVAD 074/7.4

Example: 52S CG 25 25 025/25

MGRS

Spaces are not required. The input muse be a properly formed MGRS coordinate, to include the Grid Zone designator and the 100km Grid Square ID in order to search and fly to the coordinates. Any level of precision (i.e. 10km, 1km, 100m, 10m, 1m) is acceptable.

Example: 52S DG 88729 03528

Lat/Lng

Any type of Lat/Lng coordinate can be used (i.e. degrees, degrees minutes, degrees minutes seconds). Commas are not required, but a properly formed coordinate is required in order to search and fly to the coordinates. Negative numbers can be used for south or west. Optionally, users can use N/S and E/W.

Nav Ident

Any type of Airfield ICAO identifier, NAVAID identifier, or Waypoint name can be used to search. When searching for a navigation point, if found, the identifier will automatically be used for the name of a new marker at that point. This can easily be overridden by typing in a new title for the marker.

Example: KDMA will bring the user to Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ

Example: TCS will bring the user to the Truth or Consequences VORTAC

Example: HADDE will bring the user to the GPS Waypoint HADDE, FL

Add marker

Add Marker Icon

Markers can be added to the map when a user has designated a coordinate to place it. This can be done in three different ways:

  1. Clicking on the map
  2. Using the coordinate search bar
  3. Clicking an existing marker will allow the user to stack markers on top of eachother

Undo & Redo

Click the button to move back or forward one step. Buttons are enabled and colored white when there is a step to move in that direction. Buttons are disabled when there is no step in that direction
