Terminology

Collection
In Maparoni, you organise locations and routes into collections. Each collection is represented as a document or file.
Template
The starting point for collections where you provide the content. They are prepared for a use case and come with some pre-defined fields and presets. You can then modify everything at your will.
Entry
Each collection has multiple entries in it, which are locations, routes or polygons.
Field
A field is a piece of data that’s associated with an entry. It can be text, number, tick box, rating, and more. The collection defines what kind of fields every entry in the collection can have.
Action
A special field that can be used to create a link for each entry.
Formula
Maparoni has its own simple expression language to combine and transform fields.
Preset
Presets let you organise the entries in a collection, by applying filtering, sorting or grouping entries. They also let you create subtitles for each entry, and define the *style* for how an entry should be displayed on the map. Presets are defined on a collection.
Feed
A feed is a collection that gets its content from somewhere on the Internet, rather than you creating it manually.
Folder
Just like with other files, you can group collections into folders.
Meta-collection
You can view multiple collections at once, as a meta collection. Presets can then use formulas that reference items in the other collection.
