Draw/Edit Service Area Help


Select a drawing tool from the buttons above by clicking on the button; this activates the particular tool. Next go to the area of the map that will have the Area of Interest (AOI) on it. Draw the point, line, or shape that is required.

It is important to click slowly so that the application properly registers each point/vertex that is clicked on the map.

The AOI can be erased from the map by clicking on the Delete button. Only one AOI can be drawn on the map at a time. The tool is active on the map as long as the Draw/Edit Service Area window is visible and active.

Access the Help Guide for more information.
