Navigate the map

There are several options for navigating the map.

Navigate with the mouse

To begin exploring with your mouse, move the mouse pointer so it is in the middle of the map display. Use the following table as a guide for completing navigation actions with the mouse.

Using the mouse to navigate offers the most flexibility. You can zoom to a specific area by pressing the Shift key and holding the mouse button while dragging a rectangle on the map. There is no equivalent to this using the zoom tools.
