The default view in the platform is the map view. It gives an immediate overview of the assets and their status (green, orange or red). From this overview you can click on a location, see the overview of reports comings in, the list of issues or schedule a command. If you want to go back to this view you can always click on the map icon in the left hand sidebar.

Default map view

The map view is composed of multiple areas accessible to the user including the "search the map" bar, where users can search available locations. Additional areas on the map view are

Left-hand side bar

Allows you to navigate through the various components of the platform.

Top right-hand bar

Gives you to quick access to reports, issues and commands on global level

Bottom right buttons

Allow you to refresh the objects displayed on the map, add and edit locations and lines, show current location, zoom in and out, configure which map layers are visible

Display options

In the display options, it is possible to change how location icons will be displayed. You can choose if location icons will be displayed as dots at low zoom levels.

Map layers

It is possible to add additional map layers to the asset environment. By having multiple map layers locations can be added to a specific map layer which can be viewed separately.

Custom external map layers

Users are empowered to use satellite view and pre-configured map layers. The satellite view (as shown above) allows for a more detailed insight in the asset’ environment. This functionality could for instance improve the process of rightfully appointing exact locations. Currently there is a dropdown of multiple predefined map layers but more will be added in the future. You are able to configure manual external map sources yourself. We use the Mapbox style annotation, so please check the Mapbox specifications.

Currently, a number of external map layers are available.

Synchronization with GIS

It is possible to link the Withthegrid map with your GIS system. This enables you to always have one single source of truth of static asset data. Please contact us.

Map filters

Map filters allow you to filter your assets based on different criteria; type of issues, no issues, no measurements and connected devices. These filters are also persistent across screens in the application so that you don’t lose your filtering strategy if you navigate to see something else, for example the graphs of a location. On top of that, they are persistent across sessions so that you keep them if you refresh the application.
