You can set default information to display on your maps. This information is always displayed when someone opens the maps.

What you should know

Security Desk users can always set the layers (map objects) they want to see on their maps, regardless of what layers are displayed by default.


  1. In the Map designer menu, click Map > Layers.
    A dialog box listing all available layers for your map opens.
  2. Select the layers you want to show by default.
    You can choose to show or hide any type of map objects on the map, including Security Center entities (cameras, doors, and so on), KML objects, ESRI objects, custom objects, ALPR hits and reads, and so on.
  3. Select the Hide empty layers option to show only the layers that have map objects on the current map.
  4. To sort the layers, select a layer, and then use the up () and down () arrows.
  5. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
