Bookmark frequently used layers

Bookmarks allow you to quickly save your map view and content, such as layers and drawings, and share it with other DisasterAWARE users to quickly convey critical information about an event for a common operating picture. Create a series of bookmarks, depicting data and places you monitor regularly, and add them to your daily checklist.

Click the Bookmark icon on the left toolbar and then click the three dots at the bottom of the bookmark panel. Click Add Bookmark to save your current map layers for later access and to share them with others.
