Viewing Various Maps for a Cave System
A very powerful but little known and rarely used feature of Cave Atlas is visual mapping.
On each system page, there is a "Locations & Specifics" tab. In the Locations & Specifics" section, you can click on the map to see an interactive map of the area around the system you are looking at. This interactive map is integrated with Google Maps and also provides 3 other map options -- Topographic Maps, the USGS National Map and Open Street Maps (OSM).
Previously, I had overlays that showed the surface location of cave passages. I have removed that for now in hopes of finding a better method of creating those map overlays.
