The 2D map Viewpoint type allows users to configure an output window displaying the desired objects on an equidistant-cylindrical map of the desired celestial body. A Map command can be used to create a 2D map view, or a ViewWindow object with a 2D map Viewpoint can be used. The following is a list of the configurable options for a 2D map Viewpoint.
