How do I create a new map?

I created one map, and I can see it just fine.

Now, how do I create ANOTHER map? I don't see any button. I see options to add elements, presumably to the same map. There are also on the top bar buttons to import a GPX file, but -- will that file go into the same map I am already looking? Or will that create a new map?

Sorry, I am a new user and I am trying to figure out how to create maps.

Many thanks!

    It's a little confusing, but a lot of the control over your maps comes from just the URL bar. just go back to the homepage and you'll have exited out of the map you were working on.

    There is some documentation for new users here:

    Thank you for using CalTopo,
