Network Map


Icon map is different from the other icons in that it allows you to add an icon representing another map in your visualization. Lets say that we have created two maps; map A and B. When working on map A, we can use the Icon map option to add an icon representing map B in our map. In other words, we can create a link from A to B.

To add an icon representing a map, go to Edit Map | Add Icon | Map, then from the ”map_name” pull down menu, select the name of another map you wish to add to the current map. Leave the other default options as and click “Save”. Repeat the steps for any additional maps that you wish to add to your map.
