Help and FAQ
There are various ways to view information about the panels on a map. As well as the Browse by Map facility, users can view the results of a search on a map (as shown below) or view any single site on a map.
Once in the map page, you can click on the map and use the control panel on the right of the screen to select and move around an area, zoom in or out on the map, and show the locations of panels in the Northumberland Rock Art project database.
To zoom in/out: On the right of the screen there are a number of navigation buttons. When the button marked is highlighted (click to highlight) in grey, clicking on the map will zoom in, using the point you clicked on as a centre. When the button is highlighted, clicking on the map will zoom out from the point you clicked on. You can also zoom in and out from a single point by changing the map scale in the drop-down menu on the right, headed ‘Scale’.
To navigate: All maps except the 1:1600000 scale can be navigated. Clicking on a point of the compass to the right of the screen will shift the map screen some distance in that direction. If the button is highlighted in grey (click to highlight), clicking on a map will re-centre it at that point.
Clicking the button will reveal a red dot for each panel in the database. Holding the cursor over a red dot will reveal the name of the panel, and clicking on the dot will take you to the panel's record. Clicking the button will show in yellow the area in which the panel is believed to be (if this area is larger than the size of the red dot).
