What is a location and how to create one?

Location is the entire physical space that you wish to collect the data from, e.g. a shop, mall, restaurant, event space etc. 

Creating a location is normally the first thing you do in Cyclops to start the amazing journey. It is a simple process with only 4 steps as below. 

Before you create a location, we advise you to have the following things ready first.
1. Location information including name, floor plan and opening hours
2. The touchpoint areas(s) you wish Cyclops to analyse
3. The RTSP urls of the cameras that cover the touchpoint(s)
4. The AI engines you wish to apply to the touchpoint(s)

Only admins and integrators can create a location. Learn more about user roles here.

Step 1: Go to the Locations tab and click Add Locations.

If other locations have been created in the workspace.

Step 2: Enter Location Information

Step 3: Choose the location access.

Step 5: Upload the floorplan file by drag and drop or select file

We only support files in .jpg, .jpeg and .png format up to 10MB

Step 6: Click [Confirm]

Congratulations! You have successfully set up a location on Cyclops
