The Overview Button and Window:
By pressing the Overview Button, an Overview window pops-up. The user
can click on the outlined portions of the globe to view other domains.
Currently, we are only receiving PIREPS for CONUS, Alaska, and Hawaii.
The Overview window can also be used to roam on the map. By dragging the
edges of the red box, the user can roam to new locations on the selected
domain. The map view can be recentered by placing the mouse-cursor in
the center of the red box, holding the left mouse button down, and dragging
the red box to a new location on the map.
The Reset Button resets the zoom level of the map to the entire projection
for the selected map background.
The Unzoom Button incrementally unzooms the view on the map display.
