There are many different ways and buttons that allows you to effectively navigate through ShipAtlas. Now you already know what hides behind each button. However, to help you become an advanced user of ShipAtlas we have made this guide where you learn more about the functions of:

Zoom in/out

If you for example want to look at the vessels around a certain city you will need to zoom in on that city. Then when you are done you may want to return to the world map and will need to zoom out.

  • Zoom out by pinching your fingers together.

  • Zoom in doing the opposite, by stretching your fingers apart.


Let's say you have zoomed in on England, but now you want to study the coast of Norway. Well, that is an easy fix!

1) Place your finger further up the screen where Norway is located, then start swiping.

2) When Norway appears on your screen try swiping your way to the Finnish coast, by swiping left.


In ShipAtlas you can choose between different options presented to you in the app by clicking on the buttons presenting the option you want.

Let us say you want to look at the status of your usage of paid features.

1) Click on the button with the dollar sign icon.

The paid feature overview will show up on your screen.

2) If you only wanted to have a look and want to return to the map,

click on the "X" in the upper right corner of the pop-up.

Choose / Dismiss

You will also need to click on the vessels and ports on your map if you want to know more about them.

1) Choose the vessel or port you want to learn more about and click on it!

Their card will appear on the bottom of your screen.

2) To dismiss their card simply click on the map and their information card will disappear.
