Control the density of Points of interest

You can control the density of points of interest (POIs) on the map. POIs, which include parks, schools, and recreation, appear on the map with their corresponding icons by default.

If you want to control the visibility of specific map features, including POIs, see Show or hide map features.

You can adjust the density of how points of interest are displayed on a map. Increasing the density displays more points of interest of the selected type. Decreasing the density displays fewer points of interest.

  1. Zoom in on the map enough to see points of interest shown.
  2. In the Map feature pane, select the gear icon gear icon to open the Settings pane.
    Settings menu
  3. Select the density you want. The Settings pane closes and you should see the density of points of interest adjust on the map.
