A common characteristic of web mapping applications is their ability to display information or perform actions that are related to the features on the map. By features, we mean any real phenomenon or aspect that we can visually represent with points, lines, polygons, and so on.
We can select a feature, retrieve its associated information, and choose to display it anywhere in our application layout. A common way to do this is using overlays.
