The Atlas is designed for use in Internet
Explorer. In other
browsers, some functions are disabled. If you are using Internet
Explorer, you may need to download an SVG
viewer in order to view the interactive maps. This only has to be done
this free plug-in from the following link: http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/main.html
From the Main Menu of the Atlas, you are able to pick the theme of interest to you. Clicking on a theme name will take you to the Atlas map for this theme. Please use the Return to Main Menu link under the map title to exit the map and return to the Atlas Main Menu. Each map will open showing the whole of Cornwall with the 12 AONB Sections displayed. These AONB Section boundaries will remain on the map at all times. There are three tabs on the left hand side of the map which show the legend, the tools and further information. The width of these tabs can be reduced/enlarged by dragging the edge of the tab to the left or right.
Instructions for the map and map tools:
Click once in the map to zoom in centered or drag a box over the particular area.

Instructions for the legend:
|Turns theme on or off.|
|Theme hidden due to scale. This is the case with the base map layers which are only visible when zoomed in between scales 1:250 000 and 1:25 000.|
Legend headings that are underlined are links to further information
on that layer. Please read the associated information (pdf format)
before using the data for analysis. Each link provides information on
the data source, the date of the data and headline data trends for that
Data layers have been generalised to speed up display. This
means that polygon edges will be simplified and may not always follow
the basemaps exactly.
When a layer is checked on in the legend, further information on the
features in that layer is available by using the tools. Clicking on
the layer will bring up further information for the top most layer that
is checked on in the legend. Further information will be displayed as a
chart or a table in a new window. In some cases, further links to
information will be available in the pop up tables. When a feature is
selected using the tool, it will flash in yellow.
