The Map Dashboard is a special type of dashboard that transforms your workspace to a single 2D map with quick access to management of vehicles (2), landmarks (3), and messaging (4).
The Map (1) provides the following options. Click to turn on / turn off these features:
||(Located above the Map Toolbar.) Enter a search term for a vehicle, alert, report, landmark, place, address, or latitude and/or longitude coordinate (separated by a comma).|
||Place a pin on a map and move it as needed by dragging-and-dropping it to any location. You can then quickly dispatch to/from this location, find the closest vehicle, obtain lat/lon coordinates and physical address, or create a landmark for repeated use.|
||Display one hour history trails on the map for all selected vehicles.
||Display landmarks on the map.
||Represent more than one vehicle in a similar location with a clustered circle. Clusters provide enhanced clarity when viewing a bird's eye view of a map with a large number of vehicles. As you zoom in and vehicles appear farther apart, clusters update accordingly. The number in a cluster's center indicates the vehicles included, and the ring around the cluster indicates the statuses of the clustered vehicles. Colors correspond to the map legend.
Use the Plus / Minus options to adjust the aggressiveness (sizing of the clusters).
||Identify the speed of traffic on the road compared to free-flowing conditions. For highways, green means there is a normal speed of traffic. The more red the road becomes, the slower the speed of traffic on the road. Gray indicates there is no data available.
||Automatically re-size and re-adjust the current zoom level of the map to include all vehicles in the view.|
|Points of Interest
||Shows restaurants, businesses, parks, parking, and other points of interest.|
||Expand the map full screen.|
|Map View||Show the street map overlay (default).
|Satellite View||Show the satellite image overlay.
Use your mouse to drag-and-drop the map to move it around. Refer to the following additional options for interacting with the map:
||Click to zoom toward the center of the map. You can also use the mouse wheel.|
||Click to zoom outward from the center of the map. You can also use the mouse wheel.|
||Drag the yellow pegman to a location on the map for street-level imagery. (Click the X in the upper-right corner to exit.) You can also invoke Street View from the Vehicle Card.
