1       Introduction 

Custom Maps 

This simulation will recall the Map function for saved images, and detail how to attach these images to the Flight Package. 

We estimate that this will take 5 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

Map Images

In this module we will discuss the Map Image functionality and how it can be employed to provide Map Images with the Flight Package.

 

You can save a copy of the map image that is displayed once the flight key information is completed for a flight. The image will contain the data visible in the map view as selected by you. You can save the map image whether the map is in the normal or expanded mode.

 

There are 3 types of saved Map Images:

        Flight - only associated with the selected flight and are saved in the Custom Map images section.

        CityPair - only associated with flights that contain the city-pair and are saved in the CityPair Map section.

        Standard - associated with all flights and are saved in the Standard Map section. The map is saved with the current map layers and auto-zooms to fit the route.
