Navigation in Smart World Professional (SWP) is very similar to tools such as Google Earth.  This is done on purpose so that users are already familiar with the controls.

The Mouse

The mouse is the primary method of controlling SWP.  For optimal use, a mouse with a wheel makes it very easy to zoom in and out, pan and select features.  Trackpad is also supported with gestures to zoom.  With a trackpad, the command key on Mac OS or option key on Windows is used to tilt the view.

Zoom In and Out

You can zoom in and out to see more or less of a map area. Use the scroll wheel on your mouse or two fingers on the touchpad to zoom in and out.

Alternatively you can use the plus and minus buttons in the lower right of the view to zoom in and out.

Tilt View

When you first start SWP, you’ll see a straight view of the world. You can tilt the map in any direction.

Mac OS

Press and hold the mouse wheel. Then, move the mouse forward or backward.

Alternatively you can use the command key, hold it down and move the mouse forward or backward.

Windows

Press and hold the mouse wheel. Then, move the mouse forward or backward.

Alternatively you can use the control key, hold it down and move the mouse forward or backward.

Rotate Map to North

Rotating map back to the position where north is at the top of the screen is easy.  Just press the R key on your keyboard and the map will rotate.
