    so glad I could finally break the code and gain access. I do like the concept of communications discussion though the issue of accessibility is a worry. It is probably necessary to stop intervention from terrorists.

      Hi Mark
      thanks for joining. I do use the ‘global’ map you are referring to. Perhaps it meets the needs for all users and we dont need a second map? {as with Google earth} What do others think? Ian

        Hi Russ,
        I have listed the existing ‘map’ in my reply to Michele in this thread.
