Before you can create web-based maps in Security Center, you must connect the Map Manager role to a GIS that supports a web-based tile service protocol.

What you should know

For example, you can connect the Map Manager to a map server that supports the OpenGIS Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) Implementation Standard. Using the WMTS standard, you can define the boundaries and scale of the tiled map layers that you want to request. For more information about the WMTS standard, see the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) website.

You can also connect the Map Manager to maps that are provided by the OpenStreetMap (OSM) Foundation, which uses the WMTS standard.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
  2. Select the Map Manager role, and click the Properties tab.
  3. Under the Map providers section, click Add an item ().
  4. From the Provider drop-down list in the Map providers dialog box, select Custom.
  5. In the Name field, type a name for the map provider.
  6. In the Address field, type the URL of the map server.
  7. Click Connect.
    If you entered a valid URL, the map appears.

  8. If the server requires authentication, set the Use authentication option to ON, and then type the username and password.
  9. Click Save > Apply.
