Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


System Requirements and tips

You must allow pop-ups on to run AFPE, the site will create pop-up windows to tell you the current active layer and to create a print page.

Using your browser's refresh button reloads the entire ArcIMS site, use the refresh map button on the layer tab to redraw the map layers.

Using your browser's back button will also reload the entire ArcIMS site. If you would like to go back to your last view extent, click the back to previous view button.

ArcIMS works best with Internet Explorer v. 5 or newer and Netscape Navigator v. 6 or newer.

If you are selecting multiple layers, the ArcIMS site will respond faster and more accurately if you deselect the "Auto Refresh" option auto refresh checkbox and click refresh map when you have completed your layer selections.
