Change the map name

At any time, you can change the name on an existing map. Click the three dots on the upper right side of the map and select edit. From this screen, you can also change the map name and description, add new layers, add or change the base map, and add data.

You can navigate your map using your mouse, your touch screen or your track pad. Change the view by dragging and zooming the map.

Location Bookmarks

As your map becomes larger and the data more complex, you can switch between different predefined map locations and zoom levels. In each map, you can define your own location bookmarks and switch between them. You can also search for your bookmarks in the search bar.
