Ease of Navigation: Field Trip Control Panel

The Field Trip Control Panel makes moving from one site to the next as easy as clicking a single button. Whenever you take a field trip, the control panel will be displayed.

You move forward and back through field trips using the Control Panel. Once you start a field trip, you'll see the panel located in the lower right of the page. You can leave the field trip to explore links without getting lost, and return whenever you want using the Return to Tour button (located top row, center, on the Control Panel).
