Navigating the GIS Map

You can navigate (i.e. pan and zoom) the GIS map. You navigate the map in the same way both when you develop your model and when you run the project and observe the simulation.

Panning

To pan the GIS map

  1. Click on the map with the left mouse button and move the mouse while holding the button down.

Zooming

To zoom in

  1. Click on the map to activate it. Point at the location that you want to see closer when zooming in. 
  2. Rotate the mouse wheel away from you. The GIS map will zoom in to the area around the mouse pointer location. This location will become the map’s center, so that you can better see the location itself and its surrounding area. To zoom in at a different location, first pan the map.

To zoom out

  1. Click on the map to activate it. 
  2. Rotate the mouse wheel toward you. The map will zoom out relative to the mouse pointer location. To zoom out to another part of the map, first pan the map.
