How to use Mehelle

Mehelle is an interactive map that allows you to explore neighborhoods by clicking on different points. Here on our Beta you'll be exploring Sovetski, a neighborhood in Azerbaijan's capital of Baku that is currently being torn down as part of a government development project.

You can zoom in and out of the map by using the + and - keys in the corner, or by using the scroll wheel on your mouse. Zooming in will reveal new points on the map.
