Setting initial zoom in GIS

I think it would be nice to be able to define a default mapview in GIS. For example, it is quite common that border regions have administrative divisions that are really huge (e.g. in the desert), while other more populated areas have much smaller divisions. It is then more interesting to be able to zoom in and position the view closer than the current default, which is often too “far out”, and it becomes irritating to have to adjust the zoom level and positioning all the time.
