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.
Location
Each collection has multiple locations in it, which are either points, routes or polygons.
Field
A field is a piece of data that’s associated with a location. It can be text, number, tick box, rating, and more. The collection defines what kind of fields every location in the collection can have.
Action
A special field that can be used to create a link for each location.
Formula
Maparoni has its own simple expression language to combine and transform fields.
Preset
Presets let you organise the location in a collection, by applying filtering, sorting or grouping locations. They also let you create subtitles for each location, and define the *style* for how an location 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.
