All Wialon Pro products include an embedded WebGIS-3 server. All address information for online tracking and reports is taken only from this WebGIS. Wialon system deals with vector maps in the proper closed format AVD. Maps in AVD format are located in the maps directory. After adding or deleting maps, the service automatically detects changes within several seconds. Precompiled maps in AVD format are available here.

The size of RAM needed for normal operation of GIS is in direct proportion to the size of maps used. On average, GIS subsystem requires 512MB + 2*<total size of all maps files>.

WIALON_WEB_YANDEX_KEYS = <dns1<:port>> <KEY for dns1> <dns2> <KEY for dns2> ...

If the keys are entered correctly, the option to enable Yandex Maps will appear in the User Settings dialog (in the monitoring site).
