My UVic Community Network - Interactive Map
Photos & Weblinks, with a Google Earth Background
by Wendy Anthony - Feb 2010

This map has a static map as a background layer. The top layer is interactive, with many clickable links which will open in a new browser window. If you can't see the entire map in your browser window, centre the map by using the arrow keys, PageUp/Down keys, or the slider-controls at the bottom & right edges of the browser window.

  6. [Press Key] S (Select tool) > Click Node > Delete
  7. Click Image (edit boxes appear at blue edges) >
    Drag corner box until Image is appropriate size > click outside blue edges
  8. Windows > Layers > Rename Layer 1 (background image) >
