Swiss Mapping is a variation on lighting functions and their control.

From Nigel Cliffe's Blog:

With DCC lighting and sound features becoming more complicated, setting up of how those lights and sounds are controlled seems to be causing difficulties. So, a short article on how to set up lighting function mapping, and altering which function keys associate with sounds in Zimo decoders.
For the lighting outputs, I'll use Swiss Mapping. Not because the locos are Swiss, but because its a really powerful and flexible way of controlling lights. To control which sounds (and any other features) are controlled by which function keys is done with Zimo Input Mapping. I'm assuming the use of DecoderPro. It can all be done with manual CV numbers, but it takes a fair bit of typing.
