is an administrative program which is used to import and setup your
original System Map, to reconfigure an existing map, to add or update
the MapSet, and to distribute map files and attachments across your
(or Source Map Layers) will be created and edited (by you or a third
party) in a map-editing program of your choice. From the Source Platform
(MapInfo, ArcInfo, Microstation, Etc.) map layers will be exported in
formats that can then be imported directly into the Maverick system.
Maverick can import·from most popular map editing programs.
Maverick Import Wizard works within Maverick MapSetup and walks the
user through the import process, asking for specific information that
will allow the system to display properly and function as designed.
It works like this:
The first time you import our source map files, (shape files) the wizard
guides you through the import process. You will input what type of information
each layer contains, and where to look for certain data. Once these
questions have been answered, the wizard will remember them for future
processing of that layer.
Once you have completed
the wizard for your original system map layers, your answers will be
stored. Bringing in updated maps will be virtually automatic.
The newly imported
map layers will display in MapSetup, where the administrator can adjust
the map display as needed. Once the map is setup, the rest of the process
is virtually transparent (i.e.: automatic).
the System Map
import, most layers are assigned default display parameters in order
to make the map more readable. Once your layers are processed into Maverick,
the MapSetup enables the administrator to set or change various parameters
for display and usage (colors, order of layers, selectability, etc.).
Once the display
is set, it is saved as a Map made up of one or more individual map Layers.
The terms System Map, Mapset, or merely Map are used to refer to the
“map” that displays in the Main Map Window of every dispatch
The mapSet defines
your System Map and contains the instructions which tell the layers
how to display and function.
When the map parameters are set and the System Map has been saved, the
map files are ready to be distributed throughout your system. A program
called Maverick MapUpdate Server handles
this process in a method which is virtually transparent to all but the
Map Administrator, who initiates the distribution sequence using Maverick
