The Category table allows you to manage marker categories within Fleet and to access those categories by external key.
Marker categories represent important characteristics of locations, such as customer sites, prohibited locations, pick-up points, refueling stations, and so on. A marker can belong to more than one category. One of the categories a marker belongs to is identified as its primary category.
