Semantic zoom is a control used by apps in Windows 8 for displaying large sets of content in a truly user friendly format. Semantic Zoom is unique in that it provides an easy to navigate, touch optimized view of the data you present to users.

In designing Windows 8 we wanted to ensure users wouldn't have to pan tediously through large sets of content with touch. Semantic Zoom is our solution to this problem; it gives users the capability to jump quickly to sections in the view.

Semantic Zoom is included as part of the Windows Library for JavaScript. For more information on Sematic Zoom check out this article on the Dev Center:
