Map

Display points on a world map, using topics that contain LocationFix messages.

These points may be surrounded by circles that represent their accuracy - i.e. the larger the circle, the less accurate the coordinates. Points generated while the GPS receiver does not have a fix are displayed in a darker red, to denote that their coordinates are likely invalid
