[idvusers] 20121026: Color-Shaded Covers Background Maps

You need to raise the level at which the background maps are being
plotted so they are above the color-shaded plan view:

Dashboard -> Displays tab -> Default Background Maps

Click on the Settings tab and play with the Map Position: either
by moving the slider or typing in a new vertical position in the
entry on the right hand side (followed by pressing the Enter key).
