Zoom, move, rotate or tilt a map in Maps on Mac
In the Maps app on your Mac, do any of the following:
Zoom in and out: Click the zoom buttons ( and ) in the lower-right corner of the map.
To show the map’s scale as you zoom, choose View > Show Scale. The scale appears in the upper-left corner.
Move up or down, left or right: Click and hold the mouse or trackpad, then drag the map. On a trackpad, you can also drag using two fingers.
Rotate a map: Click and hold the pointer on the compass while you drag left and right or up and down.
After you rotate a map, you can return to the north-facing orientation by clicking the compass, or pressing Shift-Command-Up arrow.
Tilt a map: Click the 3D button in the toolbar, then drag the slider in the lower-right corner.
View the earth with an interactive 3D globe: If you have a Mac with Apple silicon, zoom out until the map changes to a globe. Drag the globe to rotate it, or zoom in or out to explore details for mountain ranges, deserts, oceans and more.
You can also use shortcuts or gestures to zoom.
