Table of contents

Markers are symbols that users place on a map to mark an item of significance. Items of significance could include buildings, the location of resources, incidents, or other items. MapTac comes pre-loaded with 25 categories of DHS symbology, but both the categories and symbols are customizable to meet the needs of your organization. You can also set the tab or tabs where you want the marker to appear in the user view.
