Create a Map Report

 
The following steps walk a user, with write access to the module and architecture, through creating a Map report in Reporter.

1. After a new report has been created, it must be designed. Ensure you are in the Report Designer pane of the Outlook Bar. Locate the newly created report in the tree view (under the FFP-2 viewpoint in this example).
 
2. The default report type is Class, so you first need to change it. In the Home tab of the Ribbon Bar, find and select Map in the Report Type gallery (you can use the arrows to scroll through the menu). A confirmation window appears. Click OK to change the report type.
 
3. In the Report Details group of the Home tab, rename the report. The report name changes in the Outlook Bar once you click off of the Name field. If desired, add a description in the Description field.
 
4. New reports, and reports where the type was changed, are initialized without any nodes or relationships added. A Map report can display map points by Address (using a street address) or by Location (using coordinates). This report will show the locations of some airports (Address) and landmarks (Location). Click Add Address in the Configuration group of the Ribbon Bar. This adds the element to the Data Source Setup tab in the Content Pane.
 
5. This element identifies the addresses of select airports, using Actual Location as the selected node. Select it in the Content Pane, and click the pencil icon in the upper right corner to enable editing. Complete the Info and Source Data tabs with the information shown. Click the Save button when finished. NOTE: In order to have the address appear correctly, each address part must be in a separate element.
 
6. The next step is to add and configure the locations. Click Add Location from the Ribbon Bar, which adds it to the Data Source Setup tab.
 
7. This element identifies the coordinates of select landmarks. Select it in the Content Pane, and click the pencil icon in the upper right corner to enable editing. Complete the Info and Source Data tabs with the information shown. Click the Save button when finished. NOTE: Because the UDPM Framework does not have a specific node to capture latitude and longitude, the External Tuple node was used for this example.
 
8. In the Home tab of the Ribbon Bar, click the Save Report button. This saves the entire report design.
 
9. You can now generate your report in the Report Viewer pane.
