The Device window (shown in the following figure) is the main graphical interface used for design analysis and floorplanning. The Device window displays the device resources, including device logic, clock regions, I/O pads, BUFGs, MMCMs, Pblocks, cell locations, and net connectivity. The locations on the device to which specific logic can be assigned are called sites. To open the Device window, select Window > Device.

The amount of logic object detail displayed is determined by the selected zoom level. The more you increase the zoom level, the more logic object detail displays. This is especially true when viewing the Routing Resources for the entire device, where the logic displays in an abstract form to show approximate placement and congestion. As you zoom in, you can see exact placement and routing.
