Implementing map layer control tools in an interactive screen map reduces map overlay and gives the users the possibility to create their own map. If one needs the roads in his map e.g. for the orientation but does not want to see the city names he or she is able to switch on or off the corresponding layers.

With map layer control tools, we avoid that the screen map is overcrowded with information. We let the user decide which elements to visualise in the map. If he/she wants to display much information all at once it is his decision and he is free to do so.
