Visualize routes, stops and vehicles easily with the map function in TISLOG office Infodesk
September 18, 2018
The map view in TISLOG office Infodesk is a valuable tool that helps you compose and visualize different scenarios. With autozoom, different views, user-selectable map sections and configurable colors, orientation is a breeze.
The following information, among others, can be displayed on the map:
- ETA with target and actual lane
- Traffic information (e.g. traffic restrictions)
- Distance measurement information
- Vehicle positions, stop addresses and stopping points
- Order information
The information to be displayed in the map can be defined in the basic dialog of the TISLOG office Infodesk web portal.
The map window can be configured individually. For example, you can set which map type should be displayed (satellite, hybrid or normal) and whether traffic information should be available. User-specific map sections can be selected from a separate menu. It is also possible to display different information layers simultaneously. This layer view can be used for comparisons (actual-target), for example.

Zooming and moving the map section works very easily via PC mouse.
The "Autozoom function" ensures that the relevant area displayed in Infodesk remains centered when zooming.
The display of vehicle groups or lanes in greater detail, depending on the zoom level selected also ensures a good overview.
Information at your fingertips
Tooltips via mouseover provide additional information about specific points on the map.
This includes, for example, the exact position of a vehicle, including information on driving and rest times, or GPS information, such as speed and direction.
In the ETA view, the estimated arrival time and distance are displayed here.
For easy differentiation, user-defined colors can be assigned to various elements in the map (e.g. vehicles). Tooltips are also configurable. With a click, different features can be shown on the map at the same time and layers can be frozen for comparison.
With the simple distance measurement a fast distance determination between two destinations is possible. For this purpose, any number of points can be set on the map with the mouse. Several measurements at the same time are also possible.
The map function in TISLOG office Infodesk offers many more useful features, which we will gladly explain to you in a personal consultation.
