Map Module Overview
When you start a new channel, the first thing you will start filling out is the Situation Report. The location set on the situation will be pinned to the map. All other location fields used throughout the channel, such as in tasks or on status boards, will also feed back to the main map. You are able to view satellite areas on the map and you can draw areas on the map using the set of drawing tools.
