This tool allows you to save or bookmark maps you have created. Note: If you would like to email a map to a friend use "Map Link" located above the map. "Map Link" may also be used to bookmark a map. Simply click "Map Link", load the displayed URL in your browser (copy and paste), and then use the browser bookmark to save the map.

The two tabs on the Bookmark tool allow you to access bookmarks you have created and to store new bookmarks. These are stored in your browser's cookies so if you switch browsers (say from IE to Firefox) they will not show up in the other browser. Clicking on the red X will delete a bookmark. Stored bookmarks will preserve: the map extent, any graphics or text added with the Way Points, Draw, & Measure tool, the currently selected map layers, and base map layer.
