Map navigation is limited by a combination of map and layer properties.
The base layer resolutions array controls the resolutions (or zoom
levels) available. The resolutions can be limited by setting a
maxResolution property or by explicitly specifying a resolutions
Navigation limited by the maxExtent property. A map cannot be panned
so that the center of the viewport is outside of the bounds specified
in maxExtent. If you wish to further restrict panning, use the
restrictedExtent property. With restrictedExtent set, the map cannot
be panned beyond the given bounds. If the maxResolution allows the
map to be zoomed to a resolution that displays an area bigger than
the restrictedExtent, the viewport will remain centered on the
