Feature Maps

Feature Maps are a great way to highlight the most important or topical maps in your Local Maps Gallery. When a map is set to be a Feature map, it will appear in the carousel located at the top of the Gallery page. If multiple maps are set as Feature Maps, the carousel will rotate and display a preset feature image and the maps item description. Feature Maps can be scrolled through by the user, simply by clicking on the arrows on either side of the image.
