Map Favorites

1       Introduction 

Map Favorites 

In this topic, you learn how to create, set default, share and delete map favorites to save specific map areas and associated layers for quick access and re-use. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

Map Favorites 

Use favorites to bookmark areas on the map that are of interest to you. You can access these favorites quickly later. When you save and/or share favorites, you also save your map zoom setting, any activated weather layers, and even filtered aircraft lists.

 

You can create a favorite, share it with others, and/or set it as a personal default. You cannot change or delete a favorite someone else shares with you.

Interaction 1 Click the Favorites dropdown button.

For more information on working with weather layers, consult the Weather topics.

It's winter vacation season in the U.S and lots of planes are flying to Cancun (MMUN).

You want to create a favorite on the Map screen that saves all the relevant weather layers so you can hone in on this area (and current weather) whenever you want.

In this example, weather layers are already active. Zoom in as much as you need for the best visibility of the Gulf area.

The first time you access Favorites, none will exist -- unless an Administrator has previously created and shared some.

The heart icon changes to red.

Since this is the first Favorite you have added, N-Tracking automatically makes it your default.

Clicking Favorites at this point causes the list to close and you can move on with your next task.

If you want to set up another favorite immediately, you do not need to close the list.

Let's create another favorite to monitor domestic flights over the U.S. (excluding Alaska).

Set the map zoom level on your map accordingly, and enable the weather layers that you want to show by default.

In this example, the map features a gray colored shared UDA (user defined area).

You cannot create a favorite that encloses private (unshared) UDAs.
