• Zoom in and out on the map by using the zoom buttons (visible when the map is touched) or by using pinch and reverse pinch gestures on the touch screen of your device. Note that subsidence indicators (green markers) will only be displayed if the zoom level on the map is sufficiently high to limit the number of markers to a count of ~250 (for instance, markers will not be shown if the entire state of Florida is visible on the map).

Scroll down on the report screen to see more information. When finished reading the report, press the Back button to return to the map.
