For example, look at the Map Legend in the top right corner. Click on "Map" to see only the streets. Click on “Satellite” to see a real satellite view of us. Or click on “Terrain” to view streets laid over the terrain.
Now look in the top left hand corner. Do you need more detail in the map? Click on the plus sign (or drag the slider bar up) to zoom in for greater detail.
Do you need to see a broader picture of where we are? Click on the minus sign (or drag the slider bar down) to see a larger area in which we’re located. In the bottom left corner you’ll see a scale for the map that changes as you decrease or increase the size of the area shown on the map.
Perhaps you’d like to view an area that lies to one side or the other of the map. Do you need to see an area to the left of the map? Click on the left arrow. Do you need to see an area to the right? Click on the right arrow. Do you need to see an area below the map? Click on the down arrow. Do you need to see an area above? Click on the up arrow.
You can also just place your cursor on the map, hold it down, then drag the map in the way that brings up the area you want to see. Pull to the left and more of the right appears; pull to the right, and more of the left appears - just like dragging a map across a table.
If you choose this way to drag the map, be sure after placing the cursor on the map not to click down and release, but to click down and hold it down, as you’re moving the map. When you have brought into view the map area you wish to see, then release the click.
