Bookmark and share your drawings

Bookmark your drawings and custom maps to save them and share with other users. This is useful for shared situational awareness and quickly communicating critical information.

Click the Bookmark icon on the left toolbar and then click the three dots at the top of the bookmark panel.

After clicking the three dots shown above, select Add Bookmark and choose the layer preferences you’d like to save. By selecting the Extents and Layers option shown below, you will ensure the full frame and content of your current map is saved.

Be sure to name your bookmark something meaningful so it’s easy to find at a later date.

The Share link shown above allows you to copy/paste the link and share your bookmark with other DisasterAWARE users.

Bookmarks serve as an excellent, interactive alternative to briefing PowerPoint slides. You can automatically set your workspace default view to display the map area, zoom, and layers you want to view every time you login. See the section titled Customize your workspace.

Want to save your current Hazard filters for later viewing? Simply enable the PDC Active Hazard layers you wish to include, as well as apply any additional filters via the Hazard panel’s Filter tool, and create a Bookmark. Those hazard filters will be saved to that Bookmark for quick-access at any time.
