Clusters

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).
