There are four different IMSMA toolbars in the Main Navigation window:

  1. Map Pane toolbar
  2. Data entry toolbar
  3. IMSMA themes toolbar
  4. Item pane toolbar

Apart from these four toolbars, you can also see in the bottom, right corner of the Map Pane the current coordinates of the mouse cursor over the map. Longitude and Latitude report the coordinates of the mouse pointer as the user hovers or drags the mouse across the map. You can even Change the Coordinate Reference System Display.

Finally, the country structure selected from the country structure pane is displayed in the bottom, left corner of the map pane.
