  • Default map zoom - define the lowest zoom level to include all features on a Map view.
  • Max map zoom - adjust how far you can zoom into a Map.


With modules you can decide which features you want the user interface to include.

  • Map Overlay - to see overlays on the Map or insert new ones (editor or above).
  • Notes - an additional tool for your workflow, e.g. to add a personal reminder to an entity.

If notes are activated you can add notes with + Note when viewing an entity. Notes will be displayed at the entity view and also all notes will be displayed at the Overview.

Be aware that:

  • Your notes are only visible to you (for public notes use the description field)
  • There is only one note per entity possible
  • Notes will get deleted if the entity is deleted by you or anybody else
