The frame on the left side of the window controls what is visible in the main panel. By checking and unchecking boxes you can reveal or hide information.

  1. The latest location of each float is represented by a small yellow float (1). Clicking on a float icon reveals a balloon with information about the float.
  2. To reveal all the float tracks, click on the folder called "Float tracks since launch" (2)
  3. To see the track of a single float click on the small arrow (3) next to the folder "Float tracks since launch". This will reveal a list of floats. Check the box next to a float number to reveal its trajectory.

The float numbers can be found in the balloons, or by using the zoom tool (4) to zoom in; after a while the number appears alongside the green dot representing the float.
