1)  You apparently are a total newbie to UIview.  The best place to be 
posting these queries is on the UIview-specific mailing list hosted on 
Yahoo groups.   Go to:


and join the group and mailing list.  If you do not already have a 
(free) Yahoo account, you will have to create one before you sign up.   

2)  It is up to you, the user, to provide maps for your local area.  
Until you provide images of maps of your local area at the magnification 
level you desire, properly calibrated to reflect the lat/long of the 
area covered, you WILL NOT be able to zoom in.    Read the pages on 
"UI-View32 Maps" in the "Technical Information" section of the UIview 
help system. 

You will either have to:  

o       Capture static (i.e. non zoomable) map images from other 
programs such as Street Atlas, MS Streets & Trips, etc,  or scan paper 
maps.  This will normally require capturing and calibrating numerous 
"screen shots" of different areas and at different magnifications.

o        For the US and Canada,  PURCHASE, install and register Undertow 
Software's Precision Mapping 7.0 program.    The Precision Mapping 
Server 7.0 add-on for UIview (free download from the UIview.org website) 
allows data from Precision Mapping  to provide a seamless continuously 
zoomable and scrollable view of ALL of the US and Canada  inside 
UIview.  The view can be zoomed anywhere from the entire North American 
continent down to street level.
