The Project Map enables you to view the locations of multiple Projects within a single map view. This can help you to situate your Projects geographically and place them within the context of the built environment.

Typical use of Filters and Selections

Using the Project Search menu you can filter your searches according to your available Project Keywords and additional data and fields. By selecting the checkbox on Project thumbnails, you can add Projects to your selection from across multiple searches. Click the 'Selected' tab to view the Projects in your selection.

Viewing Selected Projects within the Map View

Having created a selection of Projects, select the 'Map view' icon in the top menu bar.

This will display the selected Projects within a Google Maps viewer. The frame will automatically fit to display your selected Projects. You can use all the normal Google Maps functionality, such as zooming into a map or switching to satellite view.

You can also chose the 'Map Color'. In addition to the default color scheme, you can select 'Grey' or 'Dark'.

Viewing Location Labels

Click the 'Show Labels' toggle switch to display labels for the Projects. Clicking on these labels will take you through to the Project Overview page.

Displaying the Project Map on your OpenAsset Homepage

It is possible to display a Maps Widget on your OpenAsset Homepage. Users on your Homepage can click directly to the Project Maps view, which is a great way of increasing awareness of this way of previewing Projects. Learn more about configuring the Maps Widget here.
