TRBOnet is able to create and work with custom maps.

For TRBOnet Enterprise versions starting at version 4.8 (TRBOnet Plus 5.0), the utility TRBOnet.MapEdit  is located in the following folders:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Neocom Software\TRBOnet Enterprise\Utility
C:\Program Files (x86)\Neocom Software\TRBOnet Plus\Utility For previous versions of TRBOnet Enterprise and Plus the utility TRBOnet.MapEdit is located in the following folders :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Neocom Software\TRBOnet Enterprise
C:\Program Files (x86)\Neocom Software\TRBOnet Plus

This tool is used to create an offline map from your image.
TRBOnet.MapEdit supports "*.bmp", "*.jpg", "*.png", "*.gif" and "*.tiff" image formats. 

After the TRBOnet.MapEdit utility is started (launched).
Click Open Image.

When you have area image open, add geo coordinates to it.
Press pin button.

It is recommended to use DMS (Degrees, Minutes, and Seconds) geo format.
For the map to be most accurate it is recommended to go to the site and take coordinates from a Subscriber unit.

Add 3 geo positions on the map using data gathered from 3 different sites.

When 3 geo positions are added TRBOnet Map Edit will ask you to save this map.

Save as file to any folder location and press Start
An offline map will be created.
To add the offline map that was just created to TRBOnet, start the TRBOnet Dispatch console and navigate to Map -> Open new Map in tab

Choose TMap from the drop-down list

Click "Add".

Choose added map and press OK.

Map becomes available in TRBOnet dispatch console.

Offline maps must be manually added to every Dispatch console.
