Abstract

Ability to view Multiple Markers on a Map in Maximo Scheduler 7.5.1

Body

New mapping capabilities were introduced in Scheduler 7.5.1 that allow clients to view assets, locations, tickets and work orders on a Google, Bing or Spatial map within Maximo.

By default when you go into these applications you see only one marker in the Map tab based on the main record.  This functionality then leads to the question ‘How do I view multiple markers on a map?”

The Map Control in the Scheduler product is available in Application Designer.  Using the control properties along with a data source, the ability to view multiple markers can be configured within your Maximo applications.

Note: To view a marker on a map the record must have a service address with a Latitude(Y) and Longitude(X) associated to it. If using the Maximo Spatial solution the record can be linked.

Using an Application’s List page to view Multiple Markers in the Asset Application

Steps to Configure:

1)    Go to System Configuration > Platform Configuration > Application Designer and search for the ASSET object.  
2)    Go to the Map tab > Map Control Properties-  Data source ID field and enter results_showlist.
3)    Save xml.
4)    Go to Asset application and search for a list of assets and move to the Map tab. Multiple markers will be shown based on the list page results.


Using a Query to view Multiple Markers in the Asset Application

Steps to Configure:

1)    Go to System Configuration > Platform Configuration > Application Designer and search for the ASSET object.  
2)    Go to the Map tab and view the Control Palette.  Drag and Drop the Data Source control above the Map control.
3)    Open the Data Source Properties and add a business object and a where clause based on the markers you would like to view.
4)    Copy the Control ID of the Data Source and paste into the Data source ID of the Map properties.
5)    Save xml.
6)    Go to Asset application and search for a record then move to the Map tab. Multiple markers will be shown based on the query set up for the map’s data source.
