Navigating around the map

The background map that appears underneath the territory data is a vitally important resource for creating features. This map serves as your primary reference to where features might be located when you are creating or editing data.

You move around the map by dragging it and by pressing and holding down the left mouse button and moving the mouse around. You can also use the ↓, ↑, ←, β†’ arrow keys on your keyboard.

You can zoom in or out by scrolling with the mouse wheel or trackpad, or by clicking the + Zoom in and - Zoom out buttons in the Map controls menu on the right side of the map. You can also use the + and - keys on your keyboard.

You can also zoom to a set of geographic coordinates (in decimal degrees) by accessing the Zoom to Coordinates feature located in the View menu. Enter a pair of longitude and latitude coordinates separated by a comma and with longitude going first, and then click Submit. The background map should travel to the coordinates.

The + Zoom in to edit button appears at the top of your screen when you are not sufficiently zoomed in. You can press it to zoom in to a minimum high zoom level where editing is possible. Once you have created territory data, you can also use the Zoom to Data feature located in the View menu to zoom to the maximum extent of your territory data on the map.

Lastly, it is possible to activate an overview map at the top of the map, by pressing the / key.

You can change the background map used in Territory mode at any time. For more information on this, visit Changing background maps in Territory mode.
