Overview and Key Concepts

Maps are used to show geographic information in latitude and longitude coordinates. They draw flat textured tiles using a Mercator projection. Map tile textures are downloaded from a tile server using the URL specified on the GIS Navigator.

GIS points, routes, and travelers are drawn by maps. A model may contain multiple maps that may draw zero, one, or more representations of points, routes, and travelers in the model. The maps themselves do not contain the other objects; they simply draw lines and shapes representing the location of other objects in geographic coordinates.


The map does not implement any states.


The map does not track any statistics.
