Put Your SCADA System on the Map
Our built-in SCADA mapping tools let you easily navigate remote sites from your PC workstations, thin clients, smart phones, and tablets.
A Familiar Interface
Interact with your remote monitoring sites in the same way you use on-line mapping tools like OpenStreetMaps®. Pan and zoom across all your sites with a simple click, toss, or scroll. Add dynamic maps to any graphic display or use the standard map pages.
Pick a Pin to See a Site
Each site is represented by a pin that changes color based on its polling status. Click a pin to open a high-impact auto-generated display for that site. Alternatively, you can create your own reusable site displays using the instantly intuitive VTScada Idea Studio.
Add New Sites in Seconds
Sets of I/O tags common to a group of sites are grouped as children to a parent tag in the hierarchical VTScada Tag Browser. This parent tag is used to poppulate the autogenerated site display described above. To add a new site, simply make a copy of the parent tag, change the name and addressing as needed, then drag the new pin into place or position it with latitude and longitude coordinates.
On-line and Offline SCADA Mapping
On-line applications can download map tiles directly from on-line map providers such as OpenStreetMaps® *. Once displayed, map tiles remain cached indefinitely.
For applications that are intended to be offline you can use the Bulk Downloader to Import all tiles for designated areas and elevations. You can even import your own custom tiles created using third-party graphics programs.
Mobile SCADA Mapping at Your Fingertips
Slippy Maps are part of every application and are easily accessed from VTScada Thin Clients running on PCs, phones, or tablets.
Set Default Zoom For Map Sites
Set the default zoom level for tags displayed on maps (e.g., Context types, Polling Driver, Data Flow RTU drivers, and Station tags). Open a map to show as much or as little of the surroundings as you want.
* Map tiles from commercial and open source websites may be subject to terms of license, or use agreements, compliance with which is the user’s responsibility.
