On Screen Tools
1. Find Maps: will bring you back to the Map Gallery where you can search for maps to open.
2. Measure: tap this to measure distances and areas.
3. GPS: this button turns on your phone's GPS location services and plots your location on the Parcel Viewer. If satellites are available it will use them; if satellite signal is weak, the phone will use cell towers and wireless signals to triangulate your position.
IMPORTANT: The accuracy of your position will be displayed by a transparent blue circle surrounding your GPS signal point. This means your physical location could be ANYWHERE inside that blue circle.
*TIP* - the longer you stand in one spot, the more accurate the GPS will become.
4. Location Search: an address search tool. Type in as much of an address as you know (i.e. 303 Court St Little Valley NY 14755).
