How Do I Move Around the Map?
The toolbar in the upper right hand corner of the map gives you several tools to navigate through the map. The Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Pan tools will be most useful.
- Zoom In: Click and hold the left mouse button down on the map at one corner of an area to zoom in to (1, below). Drag the mouse to the other corner of the area, and release the mouse button (2, below). The map will zoom in to that area.
- Zoom Out: Draw a rectangular area similar to Zoom In, only this time the map will zoom out to fit the size of the area.
- Pan: Click and hold the left mouse button on the map, and drag the map. The map will be re-centered, with the location dragged at the location you dropped it.
- Full Extent: Immediately zooms the map out to see all of Macon county.
- Previous Extent: The map returns to the area displayed previously. Similar to the browser's Back button, but specifically for the map. If the button is disabled, you are at the original extent in the extent history.
- Next Extent: The map displays the next extent in the list of stored map extents. This is only available after the Previous Extent button has been clicked. If the button is disabled, you are at the latest extent in the extent history.
Another way to navigate in the map is to use the navigation and scale elements shown to the right. Click and hold the directional arrow (N, S, E, or W) in the direction you want to move the map. To zoom in and out of the map, you may press the (+) or (-) buttons below the arrows, or slide the bar up and down to the level of zoom you desire.
