When searching the Florida Aerial Photography Digital Collection here: http://ufdc.ufl.edu/aerials there are two choices to use when doing a map/geographic search. Either select a single point (which works well since each aerial is a rectangle in our system) or select an area. To select an area, click on the 'PRESS TO SELECT AREA' button. The button should turn yellow and say 'SELECT THE FIRST POINT'. Click on the map and release the mouse button. Not much immediately happens. But if you drag the mouse a bit on the map, you should see a red rectangle appear. Clicking again on the map should place the second point. You should now see two tacks and a red rectangle between them. Generally it is better to click the upper left corner first and then click on the lower right corner of the area you are trying to select. Once the tacks appear, you can drag the tacks to change your area selection.
