Viewing base stations on the map

On an interactive map displayed on the Map tab, you can visually locate your base stations and quickly access for each one the base station details page and the base station alarms page.

Base stations are represented with their health state. When close together, base stations are grouped in clusters. A cluster can contain clusters and is represented by a green circle with the number of base stations in it. You must break down the cluster into individual base stations to access the base station information.

You can use filters to restrict the number of base stations you want to display on the map. Filters criteria and selection are the same on the List and Map tab. For more information, see Filtering base stations.

Important A base station in initialization state using Onboard Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) position cannot display on the map because it has not yet reported its position. For more information, see Base stations health states.

For more information about all you can do on the Map tab, see More map activities.


  1. Select Base stations, then the Map tab.

    -> The Map tab shows clusters and/or base stations located within the boundaries of the displayed area of the map.

    -> If you have made a filter selection, it is applied. To see all base stations, click Clear all. For more information, see Filtering base stations.

  2. If a cluster is displayed, click it as necessary until it breaks into clusters and/or base stations. You can also zoom in and click SEARCH THIS AREA.

    -> When one or more base stations are found, they appear simultaneously with a health status marker on the map and the list pane. Tip To help you locate visually a base station or get its identifiers:

    • On the map: When hovering your pointer over a base station marker, it enlarges and the base station identifiers are highlighted in the list pane.

    • In the list pane: When hovering your pointer over some base station identifiers, the corresponding base station marker enlarges on the map.

  3. If a base station is displayed, click it on the map or in the list pane to get the following information:

    InformationDescription
    NameClick the base station name to open the corresponding base station details page. For more information, see Base stations' parameters. To go back, click Back several times in your web browser.
    StatusFor more information, see Base stations health states.
    LRR-UUIDFor more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    LRR-IDFor more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    TagsHover your pointer over the tags to get their number. For more information, see Base stations' parameters and Tagging base stations.
    ManufacturerFor more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    ModelFor more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    SW versionFor more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    Active interfaceActive backhaul interface of the base station. For more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    Packet for the last hour (up - down)Numbers of packets up and down for the last hour. For more information, see Base stations' parameters.
    Number of not-acked active alarm(s)Number of active alarms triggered on the base station and not acknowledged by any user. The color indicates the highest severity of the alarms. Click it to see all the details of the base station's alarms. For more information, see About base station alarms.

    If the segregation based on domains has been enabled by an administrator user, the list of Domains associated with the base station is displayed. For more information, see Base stations' parameters.

  4. To get information about another base station:

    • Either click the base station marker on the map. You can close the list pane if the marker is covered.

    • Or click Back to the base station list and click the base station in the list.

  5. If the list pane informs you that there are more clusters in the area, repeat from step 2.

  6. If you want to search base stations outside the displayed area of the map or if No data found is displayed, zoom out or go to the area of the map you want. You can toggle the map to full-screen mode to see all regions of the world and then zoom in the region you want. If no base station nor cluster are displayed, click SEARCH THIS AREA, then repeat from step 2.

More map activities

In the Map tab of the base stations list, you can perform the following activities:

ActivityDescription
Viewing total of base stations found in the map displayed areaTo see the total of base stations found within the boundaries of the displayed area of the map, look at the top of the base station map. This number includes base stations displayed individually and base stations contained in clusters.
Note If using Onboard Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) position, a base station in initialization state cannot display on the map because it has not yet reported its position.
Provisioning base stationsIf you have read-write access, click ADD BASE STATION. For more information, see Provisioning the base station on ThingPark GUI.
Tagging /untagging displayed base stationsTo tag or untag base stations for filtering or multicast purpose, click Tag/Untag all displayed base stations. At least one base station must be displayed on the map
Filtering base stationsSee Filtering base stations.

If the segregation based on domains has been enabled by an administrator user, the button allows to associate displayed base stations with domains. For more information, see Associating base stations with domains.
