Map controls? Finished my first storymap and was wondering if there are any map controls for setting what zoom level you would like for each slide? Also, it would be nice to be able to expand the map similar to the way it can be hidden. Have more questions?

We experimented with making the map window resizeable and found that there were interaction problems that we couldn't resolve. We may take another look in the future, but we are also looking at having an option to zoom the map to full screen (as is commonly available with video players) as well as alternative layouts of the map and the narrative slides. Regarding setting the zoom level, right now Timeline tries to keep both the previous and the new map point in view, so that viewers can see how they relate to each other. This is at odds with a custom zoom level. We have tooling to support setting a custom zoom, but we're not sure how to resolve these competing features. 0 J. Heasly March 26, 2014 18:18 A user-adjustable zoom is something we wondered about too. As for the behavior, after a user clicks the forward/backward arrow and the transition is done, could not the minimal "+" and "-" zoom tools appear in say the upper left? They would disappear when the forward/backward arrow is clicked, then re-appear when the transitions done. Does that make sense/Am I talking UI madness? Awesome, awesome tool though! 0 Frode Grimelid July 20, 2014 09:37 My map zooms so far in that the map tiles go black (useing mapbox, paid account). I need a fix pretty quick. The tool you are talking about, can I access it? 0 Kelly December 18, 2017 15:35 Hi Joe, Is the info in this ticket still accurate? I noticed one of the examples on the site has the leaflet map controls and I was looking to have the same behaviour: https://www.minnpost.com/stroll/2014/06/hockey-hip-hop-and-other-green-line-highlights Cheers. 0 Joe Germuska December 18, 2017 15:49 @Kelly For that story, MinnPost "hacked" StoryMapJS, and I assume that's one of the things they changed about it. That story itself is on GitHub, and this dependency file https://github.com/MinnPost/minnpost-green-line-story-map/blob/master/bower.json points to usage of a derived StoryMap. Unfortunately, it looks as though Alan has deleted that derived repository or made it private, as it comes up 404 on github.com. 0 Kelly December 18, 2017 15:54 Thanks for the info, Joe. Maybe I'll reach out to Alan. 0 Jessicalutzfilm February 05, 2018 14:03 Hello @Kelly and @Joe I am interested in the same leaflet map controls and behavior as the following site: https://www.minnpost.com/stroll/2014/06/hockey-hip-hop-and-other-green-line-highlights @kelly, did you receive the correct instruction from Alan? Thank you! Jessica 0 Giovanni Roverso February 23, 2019 19:53 @ Frode, if you are too far zoomed-in in the slide editor you should be able to zoom out. This main suggestion was for pins being zoomed farther in which is conflicting with the the order to show the previous pin in the window 0 Giovanni Roverso February 23, 2019 19:54 I think the user should have an option to override the show last pin option, but perhaps the transition could happen in two stages: move over, then zoom in.
