This option captures the entire map view, and is very useful for sharing an image quickly with others via email, or for use in presentations.

Your snapshot includes a scale bar, located in the bottom left-hand corner of the image. This is handy for manually scaling your snapshot image, although it will always be an approximation.

Note that the scale bar is not available for 3D.
