The Overlays section contains all maps featured on Chapter Pages and additional map overlays that provide a range of geographic perspectives on the Pee Dee region's natural and cultural landscapes.

Points of Interest (POI): Clickable map icons. Pee Dee Explorer's points of interest are linked to video and text content featured on the site.

Overlay: A custom map layer. Maps with overlays may limit a user's ability to view features Google Maps map/sat/ter/earth menu.

Map/Sat/Ter/Earth: Menu in top right corner of Google Maps embed. Allows a user to switch between base map, and satellite, terrain, and Google Earth layers. These layers may be obscured by an overlay.
