Visualising where work is physically taking place, is a quick and effective way of communicating a plan to those that need to see and understand it. The maps page is where all Work Areas assigned to tasks can be seen, showing you how the plan is taking place physically across a definable period of time. The Map is one of three key components of your Aphex Planner Project that can be accessed using the Navigation Buttons at the top of your Project.

The Map Page can be broken down into 4 components:


1. Map Canvas
