You can set the following parameters:

 

General

Show areas on all maps: Select which areas (Places types and zones) you want to be always visible on the maps.

Show trails from: Select for which vehicles and for which period you want the past routes of the vehicles to be shown, when several vehicles are displayed at once (last position view mode).

When clicking a vehicle from the list: Select the map mode (last position view mode or path view mode) that you want to be applied when you select a vehicle on the map. You have two options:

  • Change to Path Mode: if the map is not in Full path mode view mode before choosing the vehicle, set map to Path view mode.
  • Keep current Map Mode: no changes are made to Map mode that is currently selected.

Show corridors: Select the mode in which the corridors will be shown on the map. You have three options:

  • Show selected corridors:  It is shown on the map all corridors, regardless of having currently associated alarms
  • Show selected corridors with active or pending alarms: It is shown on the map only corridors for which there is currently at least one vehicle with a corridor with alarms associated, regardless of that alarm having already started to be controlled or not.
  • Show selected corridors with active alarms: It is shown on the map only corridors for which there is currently at least one vehicle with a corridor exit alarm associated, and that alarm has already started to be controlled, i.e., the conditions set in Detection Starts when field of the alarm description, have been met.

Show active route path on the map: Choose this option if you want to see the active routes in a glow up on the map.

Clustering level for places: To know more about clustering level for places, click here.

 

Place

Place marker size: Define the size of the place icons that are displayed on the map. Note that this feature can be handy in case you have many places defined and they are covering a lot of the behavior. It provides you a better visualization experience.

For that, use the place size marker bar and select between SmallMedium or Large sized icons.

Way points

Occurrences way points size (alarms, start points, etc..): Definition of the size of the event icons (alarms, trip starting points, etc…). If you wish to redefine the size of the event icons, use the bar and select between SmallMedium or Large sized icons.

Arrow way points size: Definition of the size of the arrow waypoints size (an indicator of the direction of the vehicle’s path). If you wish to redefine the size of the arrow waypoints size, use the bar and select between SmallMedium or Large sized icons.

Map options

Last position mode: Definition of the map behavior after an auto refresh, in last position mode. The auto-refresh is performed every minute.
By clicking on the drop-down menu button, you can choose the behavior of the map after an auto-refresh:

  • Center and auto zoom: Every minute the map will auto-zoom and re-center, to show the last position of all the fleet’s vehicles.
  • Do not center nor auto zoom: This is the default option. This option does not center nor auto-zoom. It is useful if you zoom in manually to a part of your fleet and you don’t want Frotcom to zoom out again and re-center every minute.

Full path mode: Definition of the map behavior after an auto refresh, in full path mode. The auto-refresh is performed every minute.
By clicking on the drop-down menu button, you can choose the behavior of the map after an auto-refresh:

  • Center and auto zoom: Every minute the map will auto-zoom and re-center, to show the full path of the vehicle in the period.
  • Center on vehicle and do not auto zoom: This option centers the map on the last received position while keeping the previous zoom level (manually set by you if you manipulated the map, or previously set by Frotcom when a new vehicle is chosen, if you did not manage the map). It is useful if you want to follow up closely a vehicle not paying attention to old positions.
  • Do not center nor auto zoom: This is the default option. This option does not center nor auto-zoom. It is useful if want to focus your attention on an area, for instance, a customer or district, and wait until a vehicle comes inside that area.
