ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt

Min-Max scale

Sample Viewer View Sample on GitHub

Restrict zooming between specific scale ranges.

Use case

Data may only appear at a certain scale on a map, and may be visually lost if zooming too far in or out. Setting the minimum and maximum scales ensures the zoom extents are appropriately limited for the purposes of the map.

How to use the sample

Zoom in and out of the map. The zoom extents of the map are limited between the given minimum and maximum scales.

How it works

  1. Create an Map object.
  2. Set min and max scales of map with the maxScale and minScale properties.
  3. Set the map to a MapView object.

  • Basemap
  • MapView

import Esri.ArcGISRuntime 100.9

Rectangle {
    id: rootRectangle
    clip: true
    width: 800
    height: 600

    MapView {
        id: mapView
        anchors.fill: parent

        Map {
            BasemapStreets {}
            minScale: 8000
            maxScale: 2000
            initialViewpoint: ViewpointCenter {
                center: Point {
                    x: -3.1927
                    y: 55.9515
