Welcome to the MapMaker Interactive This tutorial explains how to explore National Geographic Education's interactive GIS mapping tool and tools for customizing outline maps for print. Use the zoom bar to go from a world view to a local view (or in cartographic terms, from a large scale to a small scale). If you zoom out to a world view, you will see that the map is in a Mercator projection. Use the location menus at the top to zoom from a world view to a continent, country, or other region.
