What is Map Editor tool?

The indoor maps of several venues especially shopping malls are quite dynamic, many shops change its location within a building or merges with the other shops quite often. In such a scenario, it becomes inevitable to update the indoor map on a regular basis. Our Map Editor tool (/u) allows you to make the edits on the indoor map and submit it to us for updating the map.

The tool is also called Field Collection tool as it collects the on-field data of a venue. It enables you to change POI (Point of Interest) names and addresses, store split/merge feature, store closing update and delete objects on the map.

Every change is color coded for easy visual identification, click once on a store and it turns green symbolizing its ‘verified’ status while clicking twice enables you to see multiple update options for making desired update on the map. When all stores/level are done, simply click on finished and this will send us all the update data.
