FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
I view the internet mapping sites with a Mac?
Short answer is MAYBE. ArcIMS requires Internet Explorer or Netscape
version 4.x or higher and works best on Windows machines. If using
Internet Explorer for MAC version 5.2 or above you may be redirected to a more
direct link to the internet mapping window. Click on the link and be
patient. Even with broadband speed the first time the window comes up can
take 1-2 minutes. After that it should go fairly fast. Sometimes it
is necessary to try a second time. Make sure to have any popup blockers
I use other MAC browsers to view the site?
We have had varying reports on this. A recent viewer said she
had no problems using Camino, Mozzilla, or Netscape. If you are using
a Mac with the Safari browser the sites may work, but with a few functions
inactivated (such as the measure tool).
email us with your MAC experiences--so that we can improve the sites
availability to MAC users.
possible, we recommend you use a PC
with a relatively current version of IE or Netscape, OR, write to us for the CD
(which includes ArcExplorer). More to come on this topic as we research
don't see the answer to my problem here. Help! See
