zoom level

The zoom level (known as the number of zooms) is a value representing the magnification of a fractal.

Every time that you double-click the mouse to zoom in, click the mouse wheel forward, or select the Zoom In command from the Location menu the magnification of fractal is doubled. Every feature gets twice as wide and twice as tall, and this is called one zoom, or increasing the zoom level by one.
