Step3: Render your indoor map by SAILS MRE (Map Render Editor)
After creating a building project in SAILS cloud and uploading indoor map, you can use SAILS MRE to further edit the appearance of indoor map, including color of region, transparency, border thickness, text size, text color, show level, etc. MRE can quickly modify the render style of the map to meet your requirement.
Note: If you modify the map and upload it to our cloud again, please remember using MRE to update whole project status even if you don't want to change the render.
The detailed procedure is shown as follow:
Step 1 Open SAILS MRE (currently only support android version). you need to enter username and password to login SAILS cloud. Note: MRE needs internet, please make sure the network connection of smart phone.
MRE will list all of your building projects in SAILS cloud, please select the project you need to edit.
Then, select the floor you want to edit. MRE will load the floor you selected.
After loading the map, tap the left corner of the APP to open the menu. the menu lists all render names (you have defined those names in JOSM).

To protect those configured settings. The default of panel is read-only.
if you tap the map, the configuration panel will exit automatically. You can see that panel again by taping the right bottom button of the app.
Each parameters are described as follows:
LEVEL: show level means when the zoom level of the map larger than (>=) the level, this region will be shown. for example, if this region's level is set to 18, this region will be shown if zoom level is larger than 18. Note:zoom level is from 0 to 22.
