The Sites Map panel

The scope of the Sites Map is to allow the user to view the exact location of all the sites he has access to, filter them and open the Sites detailed view mode for further actions.

The central part of the Sites Map panel is the actual sites map. The map displays the sites at their actual locations, based on geographical coordinates, allowing the user to see the location of the site at any zoom level.

Warning

Sites without geographical coordinates defined, will not be visible on the map. For more details, please visit the sites management article, here.

The sites are represented by pins on the map, which the user can select in order to view more information about the site. The pin colors of the map are stated by the color of the alarm priority, if there are any ongoing alarms on the respective site, as follows:

  • If no ongoing alarms are available on the site, the pin color will be green;

  • If ongoing alarms are available on the site, the pin color will be displayed depending on the alarm priority:

    • If the alarm has no priority defined, the pin color will be red;

    • If the alarm has a priority defined, the pin color will inherit the priority color;
