Import the svg-pan-zoom-container into the document.

import { pan, zoom, getScale, setScale, resetScale } from 'svg-pan-zoom-container';
<-- or from a cdn -->
<script src=""></script>

Enable the zoom and pan functionalities on the SVG object by adding the following attribute to the parent container.

<div data-zoom-on-wheel
       SVG Elements Here

Possible options for the SVG zoom functionality.

<div data-zoom-on-wheel="zoom-amount: 0.002; min-scale: 1; max-scale: 10; scaling-property: 'width/height'">

Specify the mouse button to drag. Default: Left.
