You can use map mode in the Monitoring task to view all the ALPR events on a map.

What you should know

In map mode, the canvas displays a road map. The map opens centered on the location you zoomed in to, the last time you switched to map mode. You can use your mouse to pan or zoom on the map.

NOTE: The map mode can only be used to display static ALPR events. To show Genetec Patroller™ positions on a map, use the Patrol vehicle tracking task. To work with a general purpose map, display a map () in a tile, or use the Maps task.
The following symbols represent each ALPR event type on the map:
Reads and hotlist hits.
Permit reads and hits.
Overtime reads and hits.

You can change the default colors of ALPR events from hotlist, overtime rule, and permit restriction in Config Tool.
