|Select All Wells
The Select All Wells button adds all wells (does not include Notices and Permits) within the current map extent to the Well List and keeps those wells selected. The button will not remove wells that are already in the Well List. If the map is moved, extent change, this button must be clicked on again to get all the wells in the new map extent. If there are more than 1000 wells within the current map extent, the application will reduce the size of the extent and query again. The process will be repeated until the number of wells found is less than 1000 or the map extent is 20% of its original size. Then, the application prompts the users to decide whether they want to zoom in to the reduced map extent or remain at the current map level.
The Select All Wells button only becomes active when wells are visible. Otherwise, the Select All Wells button does not work.
The Find By Lat / Long is in WGS84 to work with the Web Mercator mapping system, but the Latitude and Longitude stored in the DOGGR data is in NAD83. It is important to keep this in mind when searching for a well location.
When doing a Find By Lat / Long, the ranges of both Latitude and Longitude are limited to the extent of California.
(That is roughly, 32.0 < Latitude < 42.5 and -125.0 < Longitude < -113.5).
Also, the negative and positive signs are not needed when entering latitude and longitude. The web map assumes signs appropriate to California.
The position information shows the latitude and longitude of the mouse cursor. For a tablet, it will show the position where the map was last tapped on.
|Notice and Permit Layer Settings
The Layer Settings button opens a menu that allows users to change the types of notices and permits that show up. On the Layer Settings menu window, select/deselect by type to make notices and permits visible/invisible on the map. By default, all notices and permits are checked and displayed on the map. By clicking on top area of Show, users can select/deselect the entire column of options.
|DOGGR Well Layer Settings
The Layer Settings button opens a menu that allows users to change the types of wells that show up. On the Well Filter menu window, select/deselect by well type and/or well status to make wells visible/invisible on the map. By default, all wells are checked and displayed on the map. A well type or a well status can be clicked on to select/deselect an entire row or column. By clicking on Well at the upper left corner, users can select/deselect the entire grid of options. In addition, a tooltip appears when the mouse pointer hovers over a Well Type.
(See Detailed Information: Well Types.)
|Built-in Bookmark Map Capability
Note: Browsers that support local storage will store the bookmarks to the local computer. Browsers that do not support local storage will attempt to save a cookie. These methods allow the saving of the bookmarks so you can continue to use them even if you close the browser. If you use a different browser or you clear out your local storage/cookies then you will lose your bookmarks.
Zoom Slider is used to zoom in/out and to indicate the current map level.
The blue bar indicates those levels (5 to 13) where wells are visible. Notices and Permits are visible at all levels.
The two arrow buttons at the top of the Zoom Slider provide access to the Previous/Next map extents.
For detailed information on ESRI's basemaps used in the DOGGR Well Finder, visit the Data Information page and click on the links for the ESRI basemaps.
|Map Scale Bar
A map element is used to graphically represent the scale of the map defined as the ratio of a distance on the map to the corresponding distance on the ground. The map scale bar will change dynamically based on the map extent, the map scale, and the latitude.
For projection information and a known issue when using the scale bar, read Additional Information.
The Overview Map uses the same background image as the basemap. The green rectangle inside the Overview Map represents the map extent of the Map Area. You can click and drag the green rectangle to move the main map to a location of interest.
Opening and closing the Overview Map: Click on the arrow in the top right corner of the Overview Map to control the Overview Map being open or close. The Overview Map is open by default.
