The Maps Control Type (offered in Grids) provides a way to display locations and geometries, using a map and interacting with them.
So, when you list data in a Grid control that contains a "location" field, it may be displayed as a map by setting the Grid Control Type property to Maps.
A "location" is an attribute or variable based on the Geography data type (or its derived data type GeoPoint). Although "locations" can also be defined based on the Geolocation domain, its use will be discontinued and replaced by the Geography data type.
For example, if a Transaction of Waste Containers is defined, you could see the location of the containers on a map, with their different icons depending on the type of container.
