Idea: Network View - plotting nodes on maps?

    Hi, I think it would be nice the Network View traffic flow nodes could incorporate map cordinates and the map view.

    While Omniscope already has a Map View which can depict flows, the design of the Network CView is much better and an add on functionality for handling cordinates and plotting/fixing to a map in background whould be extremely useful.

    You can use "Connect markers" in the Map view to show lines between points. In this way a limited form of a network can be created.

    Yes, in absence of the add on to network view, I have used that. However, various features are missing in it.

    I am working with import export data and the network view looks excellent (inspite of map cordinates missing) as opposed to the map view. For example, the lines can not be made proportional to the values, The source, destinations, volume labels added to network view are more comprehensive and easy to understand and neat as opposed to when tried with map view. Also the difference in colors makes it look much more appealing.

    In the meantime, is it at least possible to fix the location of network points? I tried importing a pic of a map, with key locations already marked, as background to the network, but as I move one node in the network, others move also, so I can't end up with them all in the right position.

    Also should have asked, how do I vote - doesn't seem to "take"!

    Kirsten - there should be counter displayed just to the left of the first post, currently showing 7 votes..including mine...

    There is a lot of work going on related to ESRI integration and upgrades to the Map View, so this will be delayed somewhat until that is finished.

    Kirsten, your vote is included in the current count. The system will not allow you to vote twice for the same idea.
