Map View

This layout allows you to visualise and interact with your data in a geographical context. It’s particularly useful when managing and organising location-based information.

Here's what you can do using Map View:

Drop a Pin: To mark a location, hold and click anywhere on the screen.

If the location is a specific place (e.g.: a restaurant, hotel or other recognised establishment) the exact location is extracted, together with recommended Tags and information from Google.

However, if the location isn't recognised, the name of the location will be saved as “Untitled Pin”. You can then rename the pin to something meaningful, like "Tom's secret spot." Once saved, it automatically creates a place tag at that location with a default thumbnail. You can then create relationships between the Tag and other nodes, such as the contact Tag of Tom in this example.

Click on a Place: Zoom in on the map to view specific places marked by Google (just like in Google Maps). Click on a place. All the available information about that place is automatically extracted from Google Maps, including its name, type, precise address, telephone number, Google rating, and website.

When you save this place, it creates corresponding properties that enable you to search and filter by them. It also connects the place to relevant topics and establishes relationships, such as creating a node for the restaurant’s website.

Search for Places: Use the search bar at the bottom to perform a Google search for a place. For example, if you search for "Italian restaurants in Boston," it will automatically search and autocomplete results. Click on a result to drop a pin on the map and save it as a place.

Relevant Tags are automatically created, and additional information such as the Address and Google star rating are added as Properties.
