Create a Map

Table of contents

As an administrator, you can create an unlimited number of maps to meet your organization's needs. When creating a map, you decide what board data should be displayed on the map. If needed, you can edit or delete the map at any time and as incidents evolve.

After you create a map, you can assign it to the appropriate WebEOC users. Only positions in groups you identify can view the map.

To create a map
  1. In the Admin window, go to Mapping: Maps. The Maps page opens.


  2. Click Create Map. The Create Map page opens.

  3. For Name, enter a name for the map.

  4. Click Save. The Edit Map page opens.


  5. If appropriate, in Comments, enter one or more comments about the map.

  6. If you want this to be the default map that users see, select Is Default.

  7. If you do not want points that are in close proximity on the map to appear in clusters, select Disable Clustering.

  8. To add board layers, in the Board Layers section, click Add Board Layer. The Select Board window opens.

  9. Select the board associated with the data you want shown on your new map, and then click Next. The Select View window opens.

    Note: Only boards enabled with the Maps <feature/> tag are available for selection. If boards are not listed, no boards with features could be found.

  10. Select the specific display view of the board you want associated with the map, and then click Next.

    Note: The available view options depend on the board selected.

  11. If filters are associated with the selected display view, the Select View Filters window opens. Select the applicable filter, defining which records will be displayed on the map, and then click Next.

  12. In the Choose Layer Settings window, for Name, a name composed of the board name followed by the display view name pre-populates this field. Modify the name as appropriate.

  13. To automatically turn the layer on when the map is opened, verify that Enabled is selected. Alternatively, if you want the layer turned off but available for users to turn on themselves, uncheck Enabled.

  14. For Opacity, slide the toggle left or right until you reach the desired default transparency level for the layer. The default opacity is set to 50%.

  15. Click Save. The layer appears in the Board Layers section on the Edit Map page.


  16. Repeat steps 6-13 for each board layer you want to be made available when a user opens the map.

  17. To set the location of the map when it is opened, click and hold, dragging your mouse to the appropriate location.

  18. To set the zoom level of the map when it is opened, go to the map and use the zoom in and zoom out icons as applicable.

  19. Click Save. The Maps page opens, and your new map appears in the list of maps.
