Slippy Maps SCADA Mapping

Standard Component

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® *. You can also pre-load these tiles for applications that are intended to be offline or you can load your own custom tiles created using third-party graphics programs. Once displayed, map tiles remain cached indefinitely.

Mobile SCADA Mapping at your fingertips

The VTScada Mobile Internet Client now supports ‘slippy maps’ on HTML5 compliant mobile devices.

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.
