How do I use the map tools?

Moving around 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 "Draw a polygon" tool will change depending on what you are doing on the map.

Drawing a shape on the map

  1. 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).
  2. 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.  
  3. On the last corner, double-click to finish the drawing. The outline of the shape will complete and change to green.
