Select Weather Layers

Once you have an SE Weather Web Services account, you can add weather layers to your map using the Select Weather Layers tool.
  1. Click the Select Weather Layers button to open the Configure Weather Settings window.
    The window contains three sections of information: Region, Layers, and Account Information.
  2. In the Account Information section, type the account name (email) and password for your account or free trial.
  3. In the Region section, select either US/Canada or World from the drop-down list.
    The Region selection determines what layers are available.
  4. In the Layers section, select the weather layers that you want to load.

    The layers change based on the Region that you select. All layers for each region are selected by default. You can deselect a layer to prevent it from being loaded.

    NOTE: Each layer has a default visibility and visibility scale range set. Use standard ArcMap procedures to change these options.
