You can use the eHQ Places Tool to overlay a GIS coded image as a WMS file. This allows you to layer in an image-based overlay on a map, such as an artist's impression or design plans. 

To overlay a custom-designed WMS file, first ensure you have activated the Places tool on your project, for detailed instructions on how to achieve this read our article - Engage with Places  also refer to the article on How to Add a WMS Layer in eHQ.

Here is an example where is has been done by the Northern Territory Government:

NOTE - The image must be in arial view, oriented north, as it will be overlaid on a map.

The GIS-coded images will render as two-D layers that are geo-located on a point-by-point basis. You may want to design multiple layers to create an interactive map and design. 

NOTE - You will need to supply your own GIS coded WMS file, if you do not have in-house expertise this can be very costly, both to design and to have the files hosted on a custom server.

You can add multiple layers, polygons, lines and points in the map, each with its own settings. Update the remaining fields for your activity, including your Pin Categories and Participation Settings as detailed in the article on Engage with Places.
