When using sMap, users are aided by the map legend which guides them as to the type of points and, generally, type of information they should be looking to provide. For a downtown plan points may include desirable uses or redevelopment sites, while a traffic study may include dangerous intersections or pedestrian amenities, and an environmental assessment may identify ecological systems and natural resources. Map legends in sMap are 100 percent customizable so that individual projects can be tailored to gather the necessary information. With the ability to customize map legends, sMap can be used to gather any kind of input and link a versatile range of data to spatial locations.
