EBS: Custom Map Feature in Everbridge Suite


Custom Maps Feature in Everbridge Suite.


The optional Everbridge Suite Custom Map feature gives users the ability to display a base map, in addition to the base maps provided by Everbridge, from a remote server in the universe tab.

Custom Map Requirments 

The following are the system requirements for Custom Maps:

  • Base map (no active layers and no map services)
  • Of type XYZ or ArcGIS (ESRI ArcGIS Server 9.3 or newer)
  • Compatible with OpenLayers 2.0 framework
  • Accessible to the public via the Internet (Does not require username and password)
  • Spherical Mercator projection to ensure map and contacts align in the map widget

The custom map must be a base map implemented using Spherical Mercator (EPSG:900913) projection in order for the contact layers and shapes to be displayed correctly; not a layer or layers on top of a base map. If "layers" are required, then load these into the Display Layers library.

Adding a Custom Map

To add a custom map, follow the steps below;

  1. Navigate to the Organization Settings.
  2. Under the Maps section, select Custom Map.
  3. Click the New Custom Map button to add or edit a custom map.
  4. In the Map Type field, select the corresponding map type.
  5. From the Max Zoom Level drop-down list, select the maximum zoom level for this custom map.
  6. In the Name field, type a name for this custom map.
  7. In the URL field, enter the URL address of the custom map.
  8. Click OK.

If the integration of the map is successful, then a preview will appear in the preview pane in the lower part of the page. From the Custom Maps page, select the Available check box to make the custom map available on the map widget and the Map Defaults page.

When selecting the custom map in the map widget (assuming it is not the default map), the application displays the map to users. The users in the map widget can toggle between any of the available maps.
