Custom marker examples


Zoom in - Zoom out

Map zoom controls

The Zoom control displays "+" and "-" buttons for adjusting the zoom level of a map.


Panning functionality of a map

Panning lets users navigate within a view while keeping the current zoom level, to display content that does not fit within the viewport.

Reset to initial view

This control is only present if the view state changed (zoom level changed, viewport changed due to panning or e.g. browser resize).

Reset map to initial view

The 'reset to initial view' control navigates the user back to where he/she started: viewport and zoom level.

Map component

Please note: The map component(s) will not work in the archive/offline version of the User Experience Toolkit website due to map key restrictions.
