The Map pane shows you the events in the Event Listing on a two-dimensional map, based on their Easting and Northing. Each event is a dot, coloured with the Event Type’s colour. (You can set the colour for each event in Event Types.)
The Map pane will only show event data included in your filters (workpacks, event types, column-specific filters, etc). If the events you are interested in are Continuous Event data (such as cross-profiles), ensure that you select that Continuous Event in your event type filter.
At the bottom or right of the map is the legend. If you hover the mouse over an item on the legend, other series on the Map will fade out temporarily. If you click an item on the legend, that series will be toggled on/off. If you export the Map (see below), only series currently visible will be exported.
You can zoom in or out by clicking in the map area and (with the mouse cursor still inside the map area) spinning the mouse wheel. You can also control zoom with toolbar buttons Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Reset Zoom.
- Zoom in.
- Zoom out.
- Resets the zoom so that all data points are visible.
- Use this button to copy the Map, as currently displayed, to the clipboard.
- Use this button to show the legend of the events on the map, the legend includes the Event Types that are selected and the Layers which their opacity has been set to anything above 0%. Layers and Event Types can be switched off by clicking on the layer or event on the legend.
- OpenStreetMap, ESRI World Imagery, ESRI World Hillshade, ESRI World Topographic, ESRI Ocean Base Map and ESRI Street Map are free to use on the web. Each of these layers has an opacity drop down list to be selected from 0% to 100%. If 0% is selected for any of the layers, it will not be included in the map legend.
- Use this button to select what event types are displayed. This is more persistent than clicking/unclicking series on the map legend.
- Selecting a workpack from this menu will result in a line on the map connecting events in the order they were logged. If the events were logged by a single ROV (or a single human inspector), this track will show the path that the ROV (or inspector) took.
- Specify the sources of the various fields used by the Map tab to display pipeline baseline data and map data. “As Built - Easting”, “As Built - Northing” and “As Built - Order” should all point to the same table — this is the table used to supply the pipeline baseline track. Typically you would point these three fields at a sub-AIG. If you don’t configure these, no as-built track will be displayed. If your pipeline has many events on it, not showing an as-built may be OK — users may be able to get a sense of the pipeline track from the events on it. “Coordinates - Datum” and “Coordinates - UTM Zone” should point to fields that provide these values. Typically they will be in an AIG — only one datum and one UTM Zone are necessary for an entire asset. Ask your surveyors for the values that you should fill in to these fields.
