Next to the main feed is the map. The map can be used to see the location of: 

  • Personnel 

  • Incidents 

  • Key events

  • Sites (and resources connected to sites)


If a user logs in to the RAYVN app on their mobile device and accepts to share the location, the user's position will be shown in real-time on the map with an icon and the user's name. 

In order to turn on and off tracking on the mobile phone, hit the tracking link and select on or off there.


Incidents can be added to the map by selecting the incident in the side panel on the left-hand side. When you have selected an incident, you will see a link just under the feed entry input field called “Position incident”. This will open fields above the map. Now you can add the position of the incident in three different ways:

  • By address. Enter the address in the address field on the map. As you type the address RAYVN will suggest street addresses automatically. Select the correct one and press enter. Hit the “Select this position” button.

  • By Geo position. Enter the geo-position in the Geo position input field and hit the “Select this position” button.

  • Click directly on the map. When you click, you will see that the input field for geo position is updated. Click “Select this position”.

Key Events

When logging, key events will be placed on the map to indicate where the logger was located when the entry was logged.


You can filter the map to show exactly the information you need. You can turn on and off filters for different elements to show or hide them. You can turn on and off filters by clicking on the “Map filters” in the upper right corner of the map. You can filter between:

  • Team stations
  • Incidents

  • Participants
  • Key Events

By clicking the gear icon next to “Map filters”, you can select “Show participant names”. 

Both Map and Satellite view are available from the top right corner of the map.
