However, the 3D map is fully interactive and tons of fun to play with!! Explore! You can click and drag the map left and right or in and out with your mouse or use the navigation controls that appear on the upper right side of the map:
- (circle with the 'eye' icon) change the view from the 'camera' including spinning about the compass. Click on the 'N' to cause the map to orient North up.
- (circle with the 'hand' icon) move the camera around - left, right, in, out (same is click and draging on the map).
- (+ - slider) zoom in and zoom out of the map
