The Mini Map allows you to see the region you are interested in with a smaller zoom level. It is represented by a rectangle that displays map images and vector elements from all Layers contained in a Mini Map, and a rectangle representing the current viewport.
The image below shows a mini map displayed in the top-right corner of a map.
Below are the main properties that affect element appearance and functionality.
