Manage Markers

MapTac gives you the freedom to place, move, resize, and delete markers as incidents evolve and maps change.

Place a Marker

Note: If you have read-only permission to a map/image, you cannot add markers to an image.

    Tip: To see what the marker represents, hover over the icon. A pop-up tooltip reveals the marker title.

  6. Move your cursor to the desired location on the image and click once. The marker appears on the map/image.

    Note: You cannot drag and drop markers to place them on the image.

Move Markers
