Control your map activity

Controlling map activities is an essential function to help a Facilitator govern, guide and facilitate the Contributors. GroupMap provides the Facilitators controls of each of the Processes with an aim to help customize, restrict, import and view access to all Contributors to achieve a common goal or task.
