# Does Leaflet has option for scale dependent layers?

Is it possible to show layers with Leaflet depending on scaling? For example not show counties until zoom level reaches 10.

Thanks.

yes you can set the scale in the constructor:

for example:

var layer = L.tileLayer("http://{s}.tile.page.com/map/{z}/{x}/{y}.jpg", {
minZoom: 1,
maxZoom: 14
} ) ;


vectors don't have max/min properties, you could use a zoomend event to trigger adding or removing them, something like:

    map.on('zoomend ', function(e) {
if ( map.getZoom() > 13 ){ map.removeLayer( vector )}
else if ( map.getZoom() <= 13 ){ map.addLayer( vector )}
});

Thanks. Is this possible with L.polygon, not with L.tileLayer? It is, I just try it. Thanks so much! –  againstflow Jan 15 '13 at 13:42
I have added a part about vectorlayers –  warrieka Jan 15 '13 at 14:55
Thanks for the answer, it works which is awesome! Just wanted to add that the method is slightly different from warrieka mentioned. Needs to be - map.getZoom() not map.zoom map.on('zoomend ', function(e) { if ( map.getZoom() > 12 ){ map.removeLayer( vector )} else if ( map.getZoom() <= 12 ){ map.addLayer( vector )} }); –  user22029 Sep 16 '13 at 8:37
