|Map Search is for using a map to find coastal access sites based on their geographic location. The map can be zoomed in and out and moved in all directions. First zoom the map to the Connecticut shore by using the Zoom In tool or selecting a town from the list of coastal towns. Then use the Site Info tool for more information about a particular site on the map.|
|Go to Map Tools Help for help using these and other map tools.|
