The Map mode is designed to locate the current position of units and track them. On the map, there can be displayed only those units which have the Show on map flag enabled in their properties.
On the map, a unit is represented with its icon and with the name (if the last is chosen in settings (the option Show unit names). Besides, it can have a tail (red line) that shows its movements for the last 5 messages (if these movements were detected within the current session).
If you click on a unit displayed on the map, in the tooltip you can see the detailed information about this unit.
However, map zoom can be altered, and the map itself can be moved. The scale can be changed with the help of the plus/minus buttons in the top left corner as well as with the help of the scroll button. To move the map, just drag it to the desired direction. In Apple devices, the map can be also zoomed using the multitouch function. The current scale is displayed at the bottom.
You can choose from several kinds of maps:
A track of unit's movement can be built for any period of time. In the Map mode, press the Tracks button on the top panel and adjust required track parameters.
Choose a unit in the dropdown list. Only units with the flag Show on map are displayed on this list. Press the Units button above to go to the work list and set those flags if necessary.
Set time interval (from-to) and other track parameters.
|Trips||Apply trip detector while building the track.|
|Annotations||Show annotations at the points where messages were received (time and speed is given in the annotation).|
|Color||Tracks can be of different colors depending on speed or sensor values or be just one-colored.|
More about track parameters.
After adjusting all parameters, press the Execute button below. Your track will be shown on the map.
Note that any number of tracks can be drawn on the map, either for different units or for one unit at different time periods. To remove all those tracks from the map, press Clear.
Click on any point of the track to get detailed information for this point: message time, speed of movement, address (or coordinates), satellites count.
If you click on the unit icon, you will be offered two options: Remove track and Information. The first one is designed to remove all tracks drawn on the map for this unit. The second is to see a standard tooltip with detailed information on the unit.
Wialon Mobile v2 supports the geolocation function. Geolocation is the identification of the real-world geographic location of an object, such as mobile phone or an Internet-connected computer terminal known from the Internet Protocol (IP) address, MAC address, hardware embedded article/production number, embedded software number, or other information.
Geolocation is activated in settings. Note that you may need to additionally check browser settings.
When you switch to the map mode, the program essays to locate you. Your supposed position will be indicated on the map with a special marker. In addition, the I'm here button will appear on the screen. Click on this button at any time to move the map to your current location. Click on this marker to see available address information.
In case geolocation is not successful, an error is displayed and the corresponding marker and button are not shown.
Google Maps are activated separately and can be missing in your package. At that, Gurtam Maps are always available.
