Magnify to Select Features on a Map

This article explains how to Magnify a small area on a Map to more clearly distinguish between the features in that area. This tool is especially useful when using a mobile device. It can be difficult at times to select the correct feature on a Map if there are many features close together and the Map view has been zoomed in to the limit. Using the Magnify Tool will ensure that only the desired feature is selected. 


  1. When you click on the Magnify icon, an area in the middle of your screen will be magnified. 
  2. Place the crosshairs on the feature you would like to select and click the Select button.
  3. Information about the selected feature will appear on the right.

Success! You have used the Magnify tool to select a feature on a Map.
