Network Map Resource

The Network Map resource displays a selected map within the Orion Web Console.

You will only see nodes and their connections if you have the permission to see them.

The Map resource provides a list of all maps created with the Network Atlas, both network maps and wireless heat maps.

  1. Click Edit.
  2. Now in the Select map area, select the map.
  3. Click Submit.

Further options available in the resource depend on whether the selected map is a network map or a wireless heat map.

For more information about wireless heat maps, see Create wireless heat maps.

Show Network Atlas Download Link

Select the box to provide a download link in the resource allowing users to download and run the Network Atlas program to edit the maps. Allowing users to download and run Network Atlas may be a security risk because Network Atlas can reveal the existence of nodes users may not have permission to see.
