Would it not be practical if you could view only the vessel segments from a particular list on your map no matter which vessel segment or sub-segment they belong to?
Well, in ShipAtlas this is not only possible but it is easy!
How to View Your Vessel List on the Map from My Resources
Click on "Vessel lists" under your resources in the sidebar menu in ShipAtlas.
Then open one of your vessel lists.
Click on the button that says "View in map" in the upper right corner of your vessel list.
The vessel list will be presented on your map.
You will now see all of the different vessel segments from your list on your map.
The list itself will be presented on the left side of your screen. When hovering the vessel segments´ names in the list the diminished version of their vessel card will pop up over their segment in the map. You can of course also hover over their segment directly on the map.
You can also click on either of the vessel segments to access more information about them. If you choose to do so, their vessel card will replace the vessel list on the left side of the screen. The other vessel segments from your list will still be visible on your map. When you are done, click on the "X" in the upper left corner of the vessel card and the screen will once again present the vessel list.
We recommend playing around with this feature until you get the hang of it.
When you are done, click on the "X" in the upper left corner of the list. You will return to a regular map view.
As you may have noticed all of the segments have the same color and will in addition to their regular shape have a circle around them. This will make it easy for you to tell them apart from other list segments if you are viewing several lists at a time.
How to View Several Lists at a Time
Click on the vessel button in the map menu.
When the vessel segment menu appears, choose "Lists" instead of "Segments.
Click on the lists you want to view on your map, you can choose as many as you want.
In our example, two of the lists have different shades of blue. This can make it confusing when we view them on our map. We are therefore going to change the color of the "Metric - Example List". If you feel the need to do the same see the following steps. Hover over the list you want to change the color of. When a pop-up appears click on "Color" and choose a new color for your list. This is also where you could choose to make the vessel list appear on the left side of your screen. Just click on "List vessels".
When you are done, close the menu and enjoy your view of several vessel lists presented on your map. If you click on one of the vessels their vessel card will as usual appear, but this time it will also tell you which list the vessel belongs to.
You now know how to view your vessel lists on your ShipAtlas map!
In the next guide, we will explain how to create a port list.
