    I am using RadMap in a project that displays a large facility layout.  Users can pan/zoom the map to select, inspect, and modify equipment around the facility.  The use of RadMap's ZoomLevel, MinZoomLevel, and MaxZoomLevel are used to limit the user's zoom capabilities.

    In this project, RadMap works great except for one issue.  Users constantly complain that the zoom increments are too large.  Two zooms in either direction make the map useless.  We are either looking at a postage stamp when zoomed out twice, or most of the equipment icons are off the screen when zoomed in a few times.

    RadMap zoom levels are integer values.  I have seen other users ask if there is a way to use floating point zoom levels (such as "14.30").  The answer was always "No".

    Are there any plans to add floating point zoom levels to RadMap in the future?  Are there any workarounds I could use in this case to make zooming more beneficial?

    Hello James,

    We aren't planning to allow fractional zoom levels, but we have plans to make zoom smooth while keeping zoom level as integer value. Unfortunately, the change you requested is not in our plans for Q3 2013 and it does not seem to be a trivial one. I will make sure it is reconsidered when discussing our future plans, but I am afraid no certain time frame can be given at the moment. You can check when this feature will be available using our PITS:

    Unfortunately there are no workarounds which can make zooming smooth in the current version of RadMap.
