How do I use the map tools?
Moving around the map
- You can pan around the map by clicking and dragging anywhere on the map.
Use the zoom buttons (+ and -) in the top left corner to zoom in and out of the map.
Understanding the toolbar
There is a toolbar at the bottom of the map. You can see the name of each tool by hovering the mouse over the icon. The first map tool section will vary depending on what part of the website you are looking at.
Drawing a polygon
- To start drawing a shape on the map, click on the polygon tool to activate it (you will see the blue around the icon get slightly darker).
- With the polygon tool active, click on the corners of the area that you want to manage. This will define the boundaries of your trapping project.
- On the last corner, double-click to finish the drawing. The outline of the shape will complete and change to green.
