Add New Locations to Your Map
After you've set up your Company and Map, you'll be dropped into a zoomed out map. To add a location, open the caret next to the Maps section of the panel on the left side of the screen to reveal the Add a Location button. Once you've clicked there, type the city, address, zip code or even GPS coordinates into the search field that appears and hit enter to bring up your property location on the map. Once your property populates, there are several methods you can use to add a location:
Option 1: Select DRAW BY HAND under the search bar. Left click on a corner of the location to start drawing. Outline the location by clicking at each corner or change in direction. Continue until you complete the outline. Once complete you can name the location, choose a color to associate with it and fill in pre-identified details like crop type or property value information. Add your own labels and values to describe the property. Click Save.
- You can make adjustments to the location boundaries by clicking on the property then dragging the boundaries to change the shape of the property outline, or holding down the left-click and moving the mouse to reposition the entire field on the map.
Option 2: Select SEARCH BY APN then enter in the Assessor’s Parcel Number along with the County and State where the field is located, then select Search. The map will zoom into the location and the APN will be added to the details panel.
Next, name the location, choose a color to associate with it and fill in pre-identified details like crop type or property value information. Add your own labels and values to describe the property. Click Save.
Option 3: Select FIND BY PARCEL BOUNDARIES which will automatically turn on the parcels overlay. Clicking on the location (parcel) you want will make the map will zoom in letting you know that it has been selected and the APN will automatically be added to the details panel.
Next, name the field, choose a color to associate with it and fill in pre-identified details like crop or varietal, or add your own labels and values to describe the field. Click Save.
If you haven't done so yet, you can link your cloud storage account so you can view all the files and information related to each location.
