A system and method for displaying a geographical map using a single stylus movement is presented. A user contacts a display with the stylus and selects an area on the geographical map in which the user wishes to view. The user moves the stylus into a zoom zone which processing interprets stylus movements to either zoom in or zoom out of the map. When the user is satisfied with a magnification level corresponding to the zoom commands, the user enters a pan zone. The user moves the stylus around the selected area to view other parts of the map. Processing displays different map views corresponding to the stylus movement.
