The zooming and interaction controls are located at the top right of the visualization. To select which controls to show in the map chart, open the Appearance section of the Map chart Properties.

1. Search

Use the search field to find locations on the map. Click the magnifying glass to show or hide the search field.

2. Zoom

Click the plus sign to zoom in, and the minus sign to zoom out. You can also use the mouse wheel to zoom in or out.

3. Zoom to filtered items

Click to zoom in or out to the filtered values in the map chart.

Tip: If you want to automatically zoom to filtered markers or shapes as you filter, right-click in the map chart and select Auto-zoom. Note that all other zooming, as well as panning, is disabled when auto-zoom is enabled.

4. Panning mode

When panning mode is selected, you can sweep the map in different directions by clicking and dragging. Double-click on the map to zoom in one step. You can still mark items in panning mode by clicking a single item or by pressing Ctrl and clicking multiple items.

5. Marking mode

When marking mode is selected, you can mark multiple items in the map chart, using one of the marking modes. Click to open the menu, and select the marking mode you prefer.

Rectangle marking – Click and drag the mouse pointer to draw a rectangle enclosing the interesting items.

Lasso marking – Click and drag the mouse pointer to draw an area of any shape around the interesting items.

Radius marking – Click and drag the mouse pointer to draw a circle enclosing the interesting items.

When you use the default map projection (EPSG:3587 - WGS 84/PseudoMercator), the length and width of the rectangle are displayed when using rectangle marking, and the radius distance when using radius marking. For other map projections, distances will not be visible.
