Multiple 2D Map Views

The Add/Remove Map Views... command is found under the View menu, or on the Global Mapper Viewer toolbar.

This tool enables creating multiple 2D planar views of the workspace data. The map view manager maintains multiple 2D views of the data. The views may contain different layers, and may be zoomed and panned independently, or linked in location and scale using the 2D Map View Manager settings.

For information about docking the 3D viewer, path profile or attribute editor, see Window Docking
