Search Layers in Intterra gives you the power to locate information from your system by entering a search term for a specific item that you expect to find in a given data layer.  All results are listed in the tool and highlighted on the map.  Specific results can be toggled off and on and the map will zoom to the extent of all the 'on' results.  You can view the results of the map by either features or a density map (hot spots). 

Here are a few examples:
  • Search the Active Resources (NWCG) layer to find the location of a specific IHC crew name or all the helicopters.
  • Search the Damage Assessment layer to find all assessments collected by a specific user.
  • Search the Structure Preplans layer to find a preplan for a specific address.
