software
has
provided

Now, we will discuss how to run in Adobe

Open the document:

[ caption id =
“attachment_2722″ align = ” aligncenter ” width =
“630”]   

Screen of
the geographical PDF document with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
[ / caption]

Firstly, we will remove the right side tools panel,
clicking
on the menu View -> Show /
hide -> Panel Tools

[ caption id =
“attachment_2723″ align = ” aligncenter ” width =
“630”]

Disabling
the panel Tools display [ / caption]

To navigate the different available
geographical data displays, we will use the standard tools: selection, shift,
zoom

[ caption id =
“attachment_2724″ align = ” aligncenter ” width =
“630”]

Standard
navigation tools [ / caption]

But, mostly, the browser layers
located in the left side of the window:

Page Thumbnail layer

The first one is the page Thumbnail
layer:

It allows you to choose the page
to be displayed , but, also, to position
the zoom window in the current page .

Click the Thumbnails icon to
display the thumbnails layer:

Increase
the zoom to display only
a
part
of the page. You will get
the display window on the thumbnail:

By clicking on the hand located
in
the lower right corner of the display window of
the thumbnail, you can change the size of the main
window display .

By clicking-moving the thumbnail
window display, you move the main
window display.

These tools allow
you to perform the same operations
as the standard tools zoom and move but in
a graphic mode .
