One of the advantages of having a map as central overview is that lines can also be added. In most cases lines represent pipelines or cables but can also represent a railroad track or road. A line can be added on the map manually or loaded via an API with a GIS system. The platform will automatically calculate the length of a segment which is drawn (or imported) on the map.
A location port, device channel can be connected to a line. If a measurement pushed to this device channel triggers an issue, the color of the line change to red. This way, issues are highlighted on the map.
