Bookmark places (Map Viewer Classic)

  2. Click Bookmarks Bookmarks and click the name of the place you want the map to zoom to.

Create a new bookmark

  1. Open the map in Map Viewer Classic.
  2. Navigate the map to the location and scale you want to bookmark.
  3. Click Bookmarks Bookmarks, click Add Bookmark, and enter a name for the bookmark.
