Routes

Wialon tracking system provides an opportunity to track a unit that moves along a route and is supposed to visit definite check points in a predefined or arbitrary order, at a definite time or without any strict schedule.

To use the Routes module, it is important to understand the meaning of the terms route, schedule, round and the difference between them.

Route is a set of check points each of which has a certain position on the map. The number of check points in a route is unlimited. Read more about routes here.

Schedule is a timetable that shows time of visit for every check point. One route can have many schedules attached to it. You can find further information in the Schedule section.

Round is a combination of a route, its schedule and the unit assigned to them. Read more about rounds here.

To configure a route, perform the following steps:

  1. Create the route itself, i.e., mark check point on the map.
  2. Create one or more schedules for this route.
  3. Assign units to schedules manually or enable automatic creation of rounds.

:!: Note that in order for routes to be displayed on the map you should check if the corresponding panel in the main menu is active. Besides, make sure this layer is active in the visible layers menu.

When everything is configured properly, you can monitor unit performance on route in different ways:

  1. Following it on a special online timeline.
  2. Getting notifications about round progress.
  3. Executing reports on the route results.

To manage routes, click on the Routes heading in the top panel or choose the corresponding item in the main menu customizer. Here you can configure routes and observe the progress of active rounds.

:!: The measurement system is determined by User Settings.

The window sectors can be resized. To do it, click on the border between them with the left mouse button and, while holding it, move the border to the right/left or up/down. However, if less than 10% of the map is left while expanding the lower sector, the map automatically collapses. To expand it, click on the line under the top panel.
