Important Browser Information
» Use of high-speed cable or DSL access ("broadband") is recommended. Dial-up access via a modem will work, but the web site will run noticeably slower than broadband.
» GIS web sites tend to have slow display speeds due to the amount of data being sent to your browser. Be patient when you click on tools in the Hub Explorer, and wait for responses to complete before clicking on other tools in the Hub Explorer. It is not unusual for map refreshes to take 15-20 seconds (the refresh time can be longer if the site is very busy).
» Please make sure that any pop-up window killer software is disabled, or the Hub Explorer and the Hub Data Portal may not behave as designed.
» The Hub Explorer and the Hub Data Portal have been tested and found to work on the following browsers:
Internet Explorer 9.0 (with Compatibility View turned off, this is the icon located to the right of the URL field, it should display as gray)
Limited testing has been done on Opera and Safari.
» To enable the dynamic coordinate display below the map, please visit the FAQ page and see the item titled, "I used to see the map coordinates in the browser status bar at the bottom of the browser but they no longer appear. What has happened?"
» The Hub Explorer and the Hub Data Portal support screen resolutions from 800x600 to 1280x1024.
