How to draw and use a custom drawn polygon area.
The Draw Polygon button can be found in the Top Toolbar beside the Address Search box. You can use Polygons to interact with the other data on your map. For example, you can add a polygon and run a filter search for points from your other datasets that fall within the polygon.
You can draw a polygon on the map which will create a new dataset, available only on map they are on, called Custom Areas. This will be displayed in the Legend and the Control Panel as normal and can be styled but will not be listed in the Library.
Drawing a Custom Area/Polygon
- Click on the Draw a Polygon button and click on the Map where you would like to start.
- Continue to click on your map to create waypoints in the polygon until you have drawn the area and shape you require.
- Click on the Confirm button to accept the shape and area you have drawn.
- Click on the Cancel button to cancel the drawing.
- Click on the Custom Areas dataset in the Control Panel and then click on the Trashcan icon to remove it from the map.
