Asset Map

The Asset Map displays assets of the current tenant on a geographic map based on OpenStreetMap. It uses the position of assets provided by Asset Management.

The center of the Asset Map is defined using coordinates and the location markers can be customized. Zooming can be configured to support CTRL key only or also mouse wheel.

Map deviation in region China 1

  • The map display is based on Amap in region China 1.
  • Zooming via CTRL key is not supported by Amap in region China 1.
  • You should follow the instructions from to apply Web client(JS API) type Amap key for your Web application.
  • By default, Amap does not support detail oversea LBS service. If you need oversea LBS serivce, you should apply for it by creating ticket to Amap service via
  • You should add below code snippet into your Web application <head> for Amap integration.
Amap integration Sample
<script type="text/javascript" src=";key={Amap key}&plugin=AMap.MarkerClusterer"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

  • The Asset Map supports up to 2,000 markers if clusterDistance is set to 0.
  • It is recommended to adapt the clusterDistance based on the pin size and number of assets in a tenant.
  • Up to 25,000 requests to the underlying map service per month are free. For an extension please contact your assigned Account Executive or Customer Success Manager.


  • (Asset Management API is used)


Use Custom Markers

This sample uses PNG images.

const assetMapComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-asset-map');
assetMapComp.markerStyle.default = { src: '/lib/pin_red.png' };
assetMapComp.markerStyle.selected = { src: '/lib/pin_red_selected.png' };
assetMapComp.markerStyle.clustered = { src: '/lib/clustered.png' };
assetMapComp.markerStyle.clusteredSelected = { src: '/lib/clustered_selected.png' };


Display a Built-In Pop-Up Window on Asset Click

Use the built-in assetClickHandler with the parameter SelectionList to open a pop-up window with available assets when a user clicks on a marker. The selectedAssetChanged event is triggered when the user selects an asset. This could be used for navigation purposes.

The following sample code shows a pure HTML implementation.

<mdsp-asset-map style="height: 450px; width: 600px; display: block" error-notification="true" zoom-level=2 draggable=true class="component-border" asset-click-handler="SelectionList"></mdsp-asset-map>
<mdsp-file-view error-notification="true"> </mdsp-file-view>


Add a JavaScript listener to detect when the asset is changed.

// get the javascript objects
const assetMapComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-asset-view');
const fileViewComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-file-view');

// add listener for selectedAssetChanged event
assetMapComp.addEventListener('selectedAssetChanged', function (eventParams) {
    // assign the changed asset id to the file view
    fileViewComp.assetId = eventParams.detail.assetId;

Display a Custom Pop-Up Window on Asset Click

Instead of the built-in pop-up, the Asset Map supports using custom pop-up windows. Therfore it raises an event onAssetsClicked when the user clicks on an asset marker. The following sample demonstrates how to use it.

Sample Pop-Up Window Definition
    .ol-popup {
        position: absolute;
        background-color: white;
        -webkit-filter: drop-shadow(0 1px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2));
        filter: drop-shadow(0 1px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2));
        padding: 15px;
        border-radius: 10px;
        border: 1px solid #cccccc;
        bottom: 12px;
        left: -50px;
        min-width: 280px;
        display: none;
        max-height: 300px;

    .ol-popup:after, .ol-popup:before {
        top: 100%;
        border: solid transparent;
        content: " ";
        height: 0;
        width: 0;
        position: absolute;
        pointer-events: none;

    .ol-popup:after {
        border-top-color: white;
        border-width: 10px;
        left: 48px;
        margin-left: -10px;

    .ol-popup:before {
        border-top-color: #cccccc;
        border-width: 11px;
        left: 48px;
        margin-left: -11px;

    .ol-popup-closer {
        text-decoration: none;
        position: absolute;
        top: 2px;
        right: 8px;

    .ol-popup-closer:after {
        content: "✖";

Add the pop-up window to your site as custom HTML element and add a JavaScript listener to detect the onAssetsClicked event:

<div id="map-popup" class="ol-popup">
    <a href="#" id="popup-closer" class="ol-popup-closer"></a>
    <div id="popup-content"></div>
// add event handler and show pop-up window on asset click
const assetMapComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-asset-map');
assetMapComp.addEventListener('assetsClicked', function(eventParams) {
    var eventData = eventParams.detail;
    //show pop-up window only if single asset was clicked
    if (eventData.assets && eventData.assets.length === 1) {
       document.getElementById('popup-content').innerHTML = 'Asset name: ' + eventData.assets[0].name;  
       var popup = document.getElementById("map-popup"); = "block";, popup);
// add event handler for closing of the popup
var popupCloser = document.getElementById('popup-closer');
    popupCloser.onclick = function() {
    return false;

Custom Pop-Up Window

Display Assets of a Specific Type

Use the assetypefilter parameter to only display assets of a specific type or of types derived from it.

// Set a filter for a specific asset type:
assetMapComp.assetTypeFilter = ["core.mcnano"];
// This displays all assets of type 'core.mcnano'.
// Set a filter for multiple asset types:
assetMapComp.assetTypeFilter = {
  supportedTypes: ["core.mcnano", "core.basicagent"]
// This displays all assets of type 'core.mcnano' or 'core.basicagent'.
// Set a filter to a specific asset type and all types derived from it:
assetMapComp.assetTypeFilter = {
  supportedTypes: ["core.basicagent"],
  includeInheritance: true
// This displays all assets of type 'core.basicagent' and types derived from it.

Filter the asset map with a search text

// Listen to the event of the asset-view component and use it in the asset-map
assetView.addEventListener('searchTextChanged', function (eventParams) {
    if (assetMap) {
        assetMap.searchText = eventParams.detail;

Hide assets with a custom filter

In some use cases, you might want to hide specific assets. For this, the customFilter can be used.

    document.querySelector('mdsp-asset-map').customFilter = function(a){
      return a.filter(b=>'M') ||'m'));

As a result, only the assets which include 'M' or 'm' in the asset name will be displayed. To reset the filter, set the customFilter to undefined.
