Zoom to a feature

You can easily get detailed geographic information about a feature layer on your map by viewing the layer's attribute table. An attribute table includes information about each geographic feature in the layer. You can zoom to a feature on your map by choosing the corresponding record in the attribute table.


Zooming to features is only available for layers created from IBM Cognos data and for feature service layers.

  1. In the Contents pane, click the Configure layer button Configure layer beside the feature layer for which you want to view feature information.
  2. Click View records.

    Attribute information for the features in the layer is displayed in an attribute table.

  3. In the attribute table, click the Go to button Go to layer beside the attribute corresponding to the feature to which you want the map to zoom.

    The map zooms to the feature and the feature flashes briefly.


    If pop-ups are turned on for a layer, you can zoom to a feature in the layer by selecting the feature on the map and clicking the Zoom to button on the pop-up.
