zoom level

Zoom level is a value that sets the scale for a map view or a scene view. Zoom level value range is 0-23: the lower values (0, 1, 2...) are the farthest from the earth and the smallest in scale; the higher values (...21, 22, 23) are the closest to the earth and the largest in scale. The higher the zoom level value, the more geographic details are present.
