Points of Interest and Distance Order Markers

Points of Interest and Distance Order Markers are available on the live view in Telematics Guru, and help to quickly identify the answers to questions like "Which of my assets is nearest to this place/point?" - and make the map easier to view at a glance. 


Points of Interest

To make use of Points of Interest, the organisation must have Points of Interest enabled in the Organisation functionality. 

Go to Admin -> Organisations and edit the organisation to enable. 



All users in the organisation will be able to see the Points of Interest on the live view once it is enabled for the organisation.


In order to add/remove or edit points of interest, the user needs to have the Points of Interest Manage permission. 




To create a point of interest:


  1. Right click on the map in the location you wish to create the POI
  2. Select Create Point of Interest Here
  3. Name the Point of Interest.


This will drop a pin icon in this location and display the name.




Click on the pin to see the option to snap to the closest asset. 


A list of all created points of interest is displayed at the bottom right of the live screen. 

Click on any in the list to jump to this POI. 

You may need to refresh the live view after creating the first POI if it is not appearing. 




Distance Order Markers


Similar to this functionality is the Distance Order Markers

These are effectively a more temporary version of Points of Interest. 

They help to identify the closest asset to a point, and will order all assets according to their distance to the marker. 


To create a distance order marker, right click on the location on the map as before, but select Set Distance order marker.



Once it is placed, the asset closest to the marker will automatically be selected, and the list of assets on the right will be ordered by their distance to the markers. 


To remove the marker, right click anywhere on the map and select Remove Distance Order Marker

Or simply place a new one - as only 1 can be placed at a time, and the original will be removed.
