You need to have a device(s) added to the system. Weathermaps work with equipment that has been added to Networking → Monitoring. Therefore, to generate a visualization of the network, we need to add devices to Monitoring and configure their SNMP OIDs for interface traffic, CPU's, etc. Once devices are added, we can create a node clicking on Add Node, and then place it somewhere on the map.

To configure node settings click on the node, you can set the position, label, which device it is, graphs and the icon.
