If you are problem in creating layer then check – Create Map layer – Point, Polygon, Line. In the below image we have created multiple junction and houses with fiber cable connections. This type of visualization make your analyzation fast.   

  • You can get information about the connected house to which port by clicking on junction point. Through this you can track the line if any issues occur at end users.

  • You can either upload fiber line data (shapefile or any GIS format data) or create line layer. And style your map as per desire. In the below image you can see various DP Junction connected to multiple houses. Fiber cables are also created in the image using line layer.
