Find and explore a group

A group contains a collection of maps and a set of members interested in those maps. Each map is either publically available or only available to the members of the group. Browsing the group is an easy way to find these maps. In the Map Hub of the app, you can search for groups, as well as view groups of which you are a member. Once you have found a group of interest, you can view its profile and work with the maps associated with the group.

Search for groups

In the app, you can search for groups by keyword. For details, see Search for maps and groups.
