If many items are clustered closely together, their pins can be expanded with a click. Paths are indicated with blue lines.
Clicking on a single pin on the map opens it to reveal the title, description, and thumbnail of the related item. Clicking the title opens its associated content (page or media file).
To learn more about how to geo-locate items in Scalar, see this description of the Google Map Layout.
