The IMSMA themes toolbar allows you to control which themes are displayed on the map. The IMSMA Themes tab in the Map Display window is another way of controlling which themes are displayed on the map and specifying which subcategory of the theme you would like to use. You can also control the display of the themes of the background map e.g. topography, political boundaries and raster files via the Map Themes tab.

To view the Map Display window, click the Map Display button, or open the Map menu and select Map Display. The Map Display window has two tabs. The IMSMA Themes tab contains the themes that are included with IMSMA. The Map Themes tab reflects the layers of the .mxd map file.
