Completely understood :)

I'm not really a programmer and I don't really know how much WOULD be involved 
in making something like this work. That's why I am not 100% sure how it would 
be done. I have ideas in my head on how it could be done but, well, I don't 
know Intermapper underneath the GUI, and therefore I don't think it would be 
appropriate for me to even speculate on how it could be coded. 

I do however have faith that yalls are coding machines over there and that 
yalls will be able to get it working. I agree with you when you say that 
there's different ways to display the data. That's why this is something that I 
think will have to be designed/thought out in probably a more communal way 
(with the customers) to where both sides can so to speak "win". I don't think 
it's as straightforward as a, "Here, deal with it".

Thank you for looking into it and responding. Intermapper rocks :)
