On the Maps tab, the cartographic system is being configured. The maps are important for the end users in two ways. First, they serve as a background to place tracking units on it, build tracks of movements, draw geofences, etc. In addition, maps define the accuracy of the address information that appears during online tracking, as well as in reports.

Map source

Select the map source: AVD or Gurtam Maps (they cannot be used together).

Choosing Gurtam Maps means that Gurtam is responsible for maintaining the map server and updating cartographic data. That is why if you select Gurtam Maps, other sections on this page collapse indicating that they are not required.

Select AVD if you prefer to create and manage your own WebGIS server. The process is described below.

Configuring AVD maps

Installed maps (AVD)

Here you see the list of the installed maps. Maps can get here either from the section on the right or from the section below. A new map is added as enabled, however, you can disable it. In this case, it still stays on your server but is invisible to the users. A map can be also deleted permanently, that is erased from the server.

Available maps (AVD)

This is the list of the ready-to-use AVD maps provided by Gurtam. To install one of them, select it in the list and download it. The map appears in the Installed maps section immediately after downloading. For a quicker search, all available maps are sorted into folders by country.

Upload and compile maps

If you have your own maps, you can upload them and then install on your server. If an uploaded map is in AVD format, it gets into the Installed maps section at once. If you have another kind of source map, it needs compilation after uploading. Press the Compile button, adjust the compilation parameters, and press Start. More information about how to create maps can be found here.

The AVD map should be uploaded as an archive (TAR, RAR or ZIP) and contain no nested folders.
