Map Options

To launch the Map Options tool click the Options button in your Data Collection's Manager mode.

This tool allows you to configure how the Map will be displayed in your Data Collection's Viewer portal.

On the right is a Map that will show how the Map will appear and can also be used to change the default zoom level and center position.

It allows the following settings to be modified:

Viewer Title

You can change the title that will be used on the header for the Data Collection's Viewer portal. This can be used to give the Data Collection's Viewer a unique name.

Default Map Type

You can set the default Map type that will be used for the Data Collection's Viewer. The typical Google Map layers are available: Roadmap, Satellite, Hybrid and Terrain.

Default Zoom Level

You can set the default zoom layer that the Map will use when Data Collection's Viewer is loaded. You can change the value either on the map or by using the drop down box. Google Maps supports the zoom levels 0 through to 19. With 0 being the highest and 19 being the lowest.

Enable Zooming

You can either disable or enable whether the user can use zooming in the viewer. If zooming is enabled the following two options are available.

Minimum Zoom Level

You can set the minimum zoom level allowed in the Data Collection's Viewer portal.

Maximum Zoom Level

You can set the maximum zoom level allowed in the Data Collection's Viewer portal.

Enable Scrolling

You can set whether the user is permitted to scroll the map in the Data Collection's Viewer portal. Disabling scrolling means the maps position will be static and will not be allowed to scroll to new position.

Map Center

You can set the default map center position in the Data Collection's Viewer portal. This can either be set by typing a (lat,long) position into the text box or by scrolling the map to a new position.

Layer Tree Width

Setting the Layer tree width will set the amount of pixels to be used as the default width of the layer tree in the Data Collection's Viewer portal. Depending on the length of your layer names you may want to increase or decrease the default layer tree width to allow more room to be available to display the map. In the Viewer the user can drag the border separating the layer tree and the map to a desired position. But setting the tree width here will change the default position.

Allow Animation

You can select whether you want the animation Generator to be available in the Data Collection's Viewer portal. If you do not have any interpolation or raster grid layers you may not want to enable the animation generator as you may not have any layers compatible with it.

Show Metadata

This allows you set set whether you want the dataset's metadata to be available in the Data Collection's Viewer Visualization portal. You may have your map set to anyone with the link so that the Multi Geometry layer is available but you may not want the underlying Fusion Table ID to be public so you can disable the Metadata visualization by turning off the Metadata visualization here.

Metadata information will still be available to the account owner in Manage mode when selecting existing datasets for update.

Saving

Once you are happy with the changes you can select save and the changes will now dictate how the map is displayed in the Viewer. If the Data Collection's Viewer is already loaded you will need to reload the Manager or launch the Viewer to see the new changes take effect.
