Zoom levels* How many levels the user can zoom in the map.
Max resolution* Sets a max resolution for what it can zoom to.
Max extent* Sets max resolution it should be able to zoom to.

The four settings marked asterisk (*) applies to the basemaps in solution. The idea is that this simplifies setup in solutions where they have many background maps that share the same settings (typically Mapping Authority cached solutions). Where these are set in both the GUI and background map, the background map vil override. Typically one example. have 18 default zoom levels, but put it down to 16 for some background map that does not support multiple levels.

Alternatively, create a new GUI by copying a existing on. In addition to language, this feature will also copy all elements associated with the current GUI, that will say background maps, modules, themes and digitization theme.
