The map is used to determine an area to search. You can move the map and adjust the zoom level to search anywhere you want. Expand the search panel to conduct advanced searches which allows you to further specify the types of stories that you are interested in prior to searching.
Once you have searched, map markers show location based stories on the map. Click on a marker to preview the story. Click on the “Full Story” link to visit the story page.
Stories contained within location based groups (i.e. they have no specific location) are also shown below the search panel once a search has been performed. The map is also used to determine the location of these stories.
For more information on how to get started please see our Getting Started guide, which can be found under HELP! in the blue ribbon at the top of the page.
