This article provides instructions on adding and removing placemarks in the websuite. A placemark is a marker used to indicate fixed points on the map.

Live AVL map view
  • While logged into the websuite, choose Live AVL from the left navigation bar. This is the default tab when entering the websuite.

Placemarks can be added on a per-user basis. They are added in the websuite Live AVL view.

Creating a placemark
  • Click the blue pin from the left controls on the map. This will open the Placemarkers dialog. 

  • Enter a Name for the placemark.

    Pins are coloured pins containing the chosen letter.

    Icons are preset images of various placemarks.

Placing a placemark
