# Zooming using GeoGraphics

Suppose I do:

GeoGraphics[Entity["City", {"Eureka", "California", "UnitedStates"}]]


What do folks do at this point to zoom in to various parts of the image?

You'll need some sort of GeoPosition that you want to zoom in on, then you can set your range:

GeoGraphics[Entity["City", {"Eureka", "California", "UnitedStates"}],
GeoRange -> Quantity[n, "Miles"]]


## EDIT 1

Here is a rough sketch of what a controller would look like:

corner1 =
GeoBoundingBox[Entity["City",
{"Eureka", "California", "UnitedStates"}]][[1, 1]];
corner2 =
GeoBoundingBox[Entity["City",
{"Eureka", "California", "UnitedStates"}]][[2, 1]];

Manipulate[
GeoGraphics[GeoPosition[{lat, lon}], GeoRange -> Quantity[zoom, "Miles"]],
{lat, Min[corner1[[1]], corner2[[1]]], Max[corner1[[1]], corner2[[1]]]},
{lon, Min[corner1[[2]], corner2[[2]]],Max[corner1[[2]], corner2[[2]]]},
{zoom, 5, 1}
]


• How would you pick a particular GeoPosition of the city on which to zoom in on? Dec 1 '15 at 17:22
• @David Check out the edit I just made, this is just using sliders- but with some effort you could most likely use a Locator control too. Dec 1 '15 at 18:19
• Seriously beautiful answer. Absolutely amazing. Yes, I would like to see a locator example as well. Dec 1 '15 at 21:42

GeoGraphics[Entity["City", {"Eureka", "California", "UnitedStates"}]];


DoubleClick anywhere on the above image

RightClick and choose GetCoordinares

Now, as you move over the image, the coordinates are displayed as a Tooltip

LeftClick at the position you want to enlarge (in this example Indian Island)

Ctrl-Copy the coordinates

GeoGraphics[GeoPosition[{40.8146, -124.169}], GeoZoomLevel -> 15]

Choose the appropriate GeoZoomLevel
