Locations form the core of the asset monitoring application. On each location measurements are recorded. Locations can be added by clicking on the add location icon on the bottom right of the map. On the left hand side the location view is opened where all locations are shown including a search function.
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.
Each location can consist of multiple location-ports. These are ports onto which measurements are made. For example: a substation can be a location and the ports can be: Transformer, low voltage rack, medium voltage rack etc. An unlimited number of ports can be added to a location. In case there are lines in the vicinity of a location then each port can also be coupled to a line or line segment.
It is possible to add static properties to locations. For example: pipe diameter, manufacturer, colour, warranty date etc. These fields are called form fields and are configured in the environment settings (see form fields in environment settings). If there is an API with a GIS system then the data is automatically loaded.
