This section explains some of the concepts and controls used for navigating the map shown in BlueWorx.

Business and SAP Context

Spatially locating assets and work is an important requirement for multiple industries. BlueWorx supports this functionality by enabling the association of asset locations with ESRO ARC GIS data or by maintaining such data within SAP as Asset location/s, asset annotation/s or Notification/ Order Action/s.

Concepts and Map Navigation

A summary of map related concepts is as follows:

The following screen fields and controls are defined, where not documented they are considered self explanatory or are explained elsewhere:

Field/ ControlExplanation/ Use
Your Location - where you reportedly are. When you access the map it will center on your location and show this symbol.

 Object Cluster. This is an object cluster. In can contain Work Orders and Technical Objects. On select the map will zoom down and may split the cluster into smaller blocks of clusters. The color of the cluster will change depending on the due status of any Work Orders that it includes:
  • Red - Contains overdue Work Orders
  • Orange - Contains Work Orders inside the start and end dates
  • Green - Contains Work Order not yet within the start date
  • Blue - Contains no Work Orders only technical objects

These symbol denotes a single Feature. 

The illustrated Point icon is the default. Administrators can edit the icons for each layer type and, for linear and polygons, the use of lines and shaded areas is now used. Here's some examples:
