Activating maps

Muckety maps are interactive. After performing a search and choosing from the search results, you’ll get a map that shows connections between people and organizations.

To view descriptions of the relations, click anywhere on the map to activate it. When you pass your mouse over connecting lines, you’ll see a popup box describing the connections. Solid lines represent current relationships; dotted lines show former relationships.

Rearranging maps

Clicking on a box in the map will expand the connections to the person or organization.

You can also re-center a map around one or more players by clicking on the map background and dragging your mouse to draw a temporary box around them. The chosen boxes will be highlighted in pink.

You can then perform one of several functions to redraw your map:

    Choose Menu: Edit -> Center to recenter the map around the selected boxes.
    Choose Menu: Edit -> Expand to additional relationships of the selected boxes.
    Choose Menu: Edit -> Group to place multiple actors in a single grouped box. You’ll be asked to name this box.
    Choose Menu: Edit -> Delete to remove the selected boxes from the map.
