RAP can be configured to use plot plans/maps hosted by WMS (Web Map Service) servers. Most major GIS providers support WMS. WMS maps can have multiple layers which can be turned on/off by the end user, and different information can be displayed at different zoom levels.

Map features can have information embedded in them (such as equipment details) so that when the mouse is moved over them a tool tip or other information can be displayed.

Current Plot Plans start out as CAD files or Satellite Images and then the images generated from them are used in RAP.
