Go to WebGIS

It will take you to the WebGIS component. Here you can see a map and perform multiple actions on it.

 Click on this icon to add a new marker. Click on the map where you want to add a new marker. A popup will show up where you can insert the Marker Title and the Thing and Device it’s connected to. Selecting the threshold option will allow you to set different types of thresholds and the marker will change its color accordingly.

 Click on this icon to enable the drawing feature. You can choose between 3 geometry types: Point, Polygon and LineString. When you’re done, you can click on the SAVE button and give a name to the layer. RESET DRAWING will remove all unsaved drawn features from the map.

 Click on this icon to export the map and all visible features to a PDF file.

In the Sidebar you can import a KML, GEOJSON or IMAGE into the map by clicking on  next to the respective type. A popup will show. For KML and GEOJSON you need to insert a name and drop a file.

To import Images, you have to choose the file to upload and specify different parameters: minX, minY, maxX, maxY, Latitude and Longitude. They are needed to correctly center the image on the map.

  • Latitude and Longitude are the coordinates of the bottom left corner of the image.
  • minX and minY can be set to translate the image from the inserted coordinates (it is recommended to leave them to 0).
  • maxX and maxY manage the extent of the image. They need to be set keeping into account mixX and minY values set. (g: if minX is 1000 and maxX is 8000, the image extent will be 7000).

Clicking on the V button will show all imported layers and will allow you to select/deselect visible layers and delete them.
