Scale Input Box

The Scale Input map widget allows users to enter a new scale to zoom the map to. This feature always represents scale as a ratio, for example, 1:1128, 1:300890, or 1:11024035. The Scale Input map widget is enabled by default.

If the map includes a tiled basemap, the user can use the drop-down menu to pick from a preset list of scales. To zoom to the new scale value, the user presses Enter or clicks Go.

Drop-down list of preset scales

If the map uses a tiled basemap and the user enters a scale that is between available scales, the viewer automatically adjusts the user input to the nearest available scale.

In Chrome for desktop, use the up or down arrow to adjust the scale by increments of one.
