Define map zoom in narrative?

When making a narrative, is it possible to control the zoom settings on the displayed map? It seems like zooming in and out on the map doesn’t change the URL, so the map is always displayed in the default view.

You’re correct - because the map zoom can’t currently be set in the URL, narratives can’t define these bounds. Note that the map zoom will reflect the “visible” data - so if you filter the data to Europe, which will be stored in URL state, then the map should start out zoomed to Europe.

Open to suggestions here, as it would be nice to include this functionality. I think we would want to define lat/long domains, not just centre points (as Google maps does), and how this would work for different screen sizes I’m not sure!

Thanks for your response! I will experiment with filtering the data to change the map bounds.
