The zoom on our maps will help you to have a closer look of the coverage in a particular area of your interest. If you’re using our Android or iPhone applications, to zoom in you can double-tap the chosen location with one finger or touch the area with two fingers at once and spread them apart. To zoom out, touch the area with two fingers and pinch them together.
If you’re navigating the coverage map of our website, you can adjust the level of zoom using the navigation icons on the left side of the map. Alternatively, you can double-click on a given area to zoom in or use the mouse wheel between the two mouse buttons to zoom in and out - moving the wheel forward will zoom in, and moving it backward will zoom out.
We should note that there is a zoom limit set in the application, which is why you may experiencing bounce back when you try to zoom past this limit. The bounce back is standard behaviour for Google maps when zoom limits are set.
There are a couple of reasons for the zoom limit:
- server load — for every zoom level, there is extra server load as the server gets the map tiles.
- density of data, past a certain point, there are not enough data points for the heat map to appear. As we get more and more data, we could increase the zoom level.
