How to use Google maps.
The easiest way to navigate Google Maps is by using drag-and-drop techniques. To accomplish this, you to move the mouse cursor to an area of the map, hold down the left mouse button, and while keeping the mouse button held down, move the mouse cursor in the direction opposite of what you want to show on the map.

For example, if you want to the map to move south, you would hold down the mouse button and move the mouse up. This will drag the mouth northwards, thus revealing more of the map to the south.

If the area you would like centered on the map is currently being displayed, perhaps towards the edge of the map, you can do two things to center it. You can click on the area, hold down the left mouse button, and drag it toward the center. Or, you can double-click on the area. This will not only center that area of the map, but also zoom in one notch.

To zoom in and out with the mouse, you can use the mouse wheel between the two mouse buttons. Moving the wheel forward will zoom in, and moving it backward will zoom out. If you do not have a mouse wheel on your mouse, you can zoom in and out using the navigation icons on the left side of Google Maps. These buttons modify how Google Maps appears:

Map: This button puts Google Maps in "map" view, which is the default view. This view is similar to a street map. It has a gray background. Small roads are colored white, larger roads are yellow, and major highways and interstates are colored orange.

Satellite: This button paints Google Maps with a Satellite overlay which allows you to see the area as it is seen from above. In this mode, you can zoom in until you can make out individual houses.

Terrain: This button highlights differences in terrain. It can be used to determine whether an area is flat or rocky. This can also give an interesting view when zooming into a mountainous area.

You can also use the navigation menu on the far left side to manipulate the map. This provides an alternative to using drag-and-drop to navigate.

At the top of this navigation menu are four arrows, one pointing in each direction. Clicking on an arrow will move the map in that direction. Clicking on the button in between these arrows will center the map on the default location.

Below these arrows is a plus sign and a minus sign separated by what looks like a railroad track. These buttons allow you to zoom in and out. You can zoom in by clicking on the plus sign and zoom out by clicking on the minus sign. You can also click on a portion of the railroad track to zoom in to that level.
