Map Search

Step 1: Zoom In

Zoom to your area of interest by clicking on the map. Above and to the left of the map are the zoom and pan buttons. The zoom bar is found centered above the map. These can be used in the following ways:

Zoom Button: When this button is selected, clicking on the map will zoom in one level and re-center the map. This button is selected, by default, when starting a new map session.
Pan Button: Select this button if you want the map to pan to the location when clicking on the map. The map will re-center to the location clicked without changing the zoom level.
Zoom Bar: Use this bar to zoom in our out to any level without re-centering the map. Clicking the plus button zooms in one level, the minus button zooms out one level. To zoom in or out to a specific level, click any of the bars between the plus and minus buttons. Click on the closest bar to the minus button to quickly zoom back out to the global level.

A selection cannot match more than 600 images; if your selection has more than this, refine your search until you have less than 600 images.
