Asset Map

The Asset map widget allows you to view the current position of a device or its directional path within a selected timeframe using a set of points that represent the recorded data locations.

The Asset Map widget is available on the global dashboards.

In the Widget options modal, configure the following:

In the Name text box, enter a name to identify the asset map within the dashboard.

In the Device Type drop-down, select the device type.

In the Data field drop-down, select the data field that you want to display on the map.

In the Devices text box, select the device or devices that you want to display on the map. You can select multiple devices for the selected device type.

You can display a device on the map in two ways: either by its current position or by showing a directional path with a set of points.

Directional path with a set of points

This is the default option to display a device on the map.

Click on the 'Path color' color picker and select the color to apply to both the path and the points.

Choose the desired timeframe using one of the following options:

  • Click on the Last from text box and select a predefined timeframe from the list. If the desired timeframe is not available, you can manually type a timeframe, such as '3 days', '7 weeks', etc. Note that '3 days' refers to the last three days, including today, for example. Here is a list of predefined timeframe presets: 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, and 1 year.

  • Define a custom date range by selecting the start date and end date, including the start time and end time too from the date pickers.

Current position

Click on the Current position checkbox. The Path color, Last from, and Time range UI controls will hide.

Enabling this option will show the current/live position of the device on the map.

You can add more Device Types by clicking on the + button.

The following Widget options modal is configured for 4 Device types, for example:

Click on the Save button to save the configuration.

The resulting Asset map widget will look something like this:
