Web Map Display
Web maps enable you to plot vector data originating in geographic coordinates. Provide geographic context for your data using high-zoom-level basemaps or data layers imported from Web Map Service (WMS) servers. Interactively explore your data using pan, zoom, cursor locations, and data balloons.
