With Entity Lists it is possible to enable and configure a map view of the data, powered by Bing maps with search functionality to find locations near an address. By populating your records with latitude and longitude coordinate values and specifying the necessary configuration options listed in this section, your records can be rendered as pinpoints on a map. Any record that does not have a latitude or longitude value will be excluded from the search. The initial load of the page will display all records within the initial value of the Distance Values field (in miles or Km depending on the Distance Units specified) from the Default Center Latitude and Default Center Longitude coordinates. The view specified is ignored when map view is used and a distance query is applied to the dataset in order to return the mappable results.
