How to Add Map Layers in ShipAtlas

Note that the satellite map style does not combine with any of the map layers.

Steps to take:

1) Make sure your screen shows the map page in ShipAtlas.

2) Click on the "Paintbrush" icon on the upper right corner of your screen.

The "Styles and Layers" menu will appear on your screen.

3) Choose the map layer/ you prefer by clicking the button next to it.

The button will turn blue when selected.

You can choose between ECA/SECA, INL, Polar Codes, Sea Ice, Canals, EEZ, Load Lines, Anti Shipping Activities, Wind Farms and War Zones. You can add multiple map layers at a time. Just click on the one you want to add! To learn more about the purposes of the map layers, visit our guide here.

4) Once you have clicked on your preferred map layer close the menu by clicking on the "X" in the left upper corner of the menu or by clicking on the ShipAtlas map behind the menu.

Note: If you want to remove or change the layers, open the "Styles and Layers" menu once again. To remove your layers, click on the buttons next to the same layers that are already added to your map. The button will turn grey when a layer is unselected.

We also recommend using this feature combined with the ShipAtlas sea route calculator.
