Setting Up Your First Building

Steps to set up your first building on a new MapPlug account

1. Rename the default building

Go to the edit mode by clicking the top icon on the left side. You'll see a default building like "XYZ - Building." Click on that building on the list. Enter a new name for the building and click "Save Building."

2. Create a new floor

After renaming the building, click "+ New Floor". Give the floor a name, like "First Floor" or whatever it is called in your building.

3. Upload a floor plan

Click the "Choose file" button and select a floor plan file from your local drive. PNG or SVG files work.

Tips for floor plan files:

4. Scale, size, rotate the floor plan to fit the building

Your floor plan file will load on your map over your building, but it needs to be moved around and made to lay over the building.

You can use the corners of the bounding box to scale the floor plan image, as well as click and drag the image to move it around. Note that you can stretch out the floor plan with the bounding box, which you may not want to do, so be mindful of how you stretch it.

If you need to rotate your floor plan to make it align with the building, use the rotation slider.

Tips for positioning the floor plan:

5. Save the floor

Click "Create New Floor" and you're done!
