Understanding the user interface
There are various ways for the user to view areas of fault within their region.
The left hand side contains the map of the region of which they’re monitoring in real-time. The user can use the scroll bar to zoom in or out of an area of interest. They can also click and drag the selected square around the map to change the area they’re monitoring.
The severity levels of fault can be used to view individual, multiple, or all types of severities by simply clicking on their respective block.
The camera view by default is set to aerial view, however the user can choose to use the tilted view.
The tilted camera angle view appears in perspective, adding more depth from foreground to background. This in turn gives the user the option to select individual severites to drilldown further into; as well as giving them a more detailed visual with relation to any particular severity level, as well as a more visible view of landmarks and location of these faults.
The camera will show all levels of severity when loaded by default. The user can choose which levels of severity they wish to view or hide by clicking on/off of their respective blocks. This can be helpful in identifying high levels of severity quickly and efficiently.
Understanding the faults table
The Type of Faults table will be ordered by date Ascending (previous to current time) by default.
The status symbol appears on the far right of the table, and there will always be a window containing the audit trail information to the Type of Fault. The three types of status are: Urgent action, In Progress or Resolved.
The user can choose to sort the tabular data by Severity levels high to low, alternatively they can reverse the order.
The user will be able to click on the upate icon to add an update to the situation regarding the current fault. When the Fault window is selected the status icon dissapears from the left hand side and is moved to the header area so that it’s more prominent to the user.
The date is displayed in chronological order by default, but can also be reversed to most recent. If the user wants the sorting order of the data to how it was, they just need to select the default link above the Fault table breakdown.
