nuCloud unveiled the GeoMaps feature in its 3.2.3 release. Using GeoMaps, our clients can provide their users with a method to toggle between their custom illustrated map and an overhead 2D wayfinding map. As with all new features released by nuCloud, this feature must be enabled before it can be used. The steps below will outline how to enable and configure Geomaps.


 

  1. Login to your nuCloud account, choose your map, then visit the Workbench.
  2. Select the “Settings” Tab and toggle the “Has Geo Map” option.
    GeoMap-Toggle
  3. Next, select the “Stops” tab.
  4. Click the edit icon next to the stop you wish to add coordinates to.
  5. Click on the “Geographic Location” tab.

  6. If you have a direct address for the stop, type it into the address search box. If not, use the address of your institution or the nearest building.
  7. The address search will change the position of the satellite map box. You will set the latitude and longitude by dragging the stop icon within the map box to your building’s location. If your building is not reflected on this map, that’s okay. This map box is only used as a method to collect the geographic coordinates.

  8. Once the stop icon is in its correct location, press the “Save Stop” button
  9. Back on the “Stops” tab, your stop will now have a blue globe icon next to it indicating that it has a physical location.
  10. When you are ready to view your GeoMap, go to the “Preview” tab and click the globe icon at the top left corner of your map. This icon can be styled or replaced using the custom css editor under the “Themes” tab.
