The map pane displays on the right side of the IMSMA Navigation window. The Map Pane interacts with the Country Structure Pane and may be centered in two different ways:

  1. if a map extent has been specified for the Country structure then the map will be centered based on the set map extent
  2. if there is no map extent set then the geopoint number 1 is used.

If none of the above is available for the Country structure, the Map pane will not change the extent.
