One of the real benefits of your own digital maps is the ability to add your own shapes, designs and ideas directly onto it, so you can move them around and play with ideas.

Luckily this is really simple to with your LandInsight account.

Step 1:
Open the drawing toolbar by clicking the icon in the top right-hand corner.

Step 2:

Select the Polygon tool from the list (the triangle tool highlighted below).

Step 3:

Click to make your first point, then click as many times as you need for subsequent points to customise the shape for you you need. For example, if you're trying to outline a particular site:

Step 4:

Once you've finished the shape, you'll see the Object Specs box open on the right of the screen. In here you'll see the area and perimeter of the shape you've drawn.

You can change the units by clicking on the highlighted sections on the right, either to switch between imperial and metric, or smaller and larger units.

Step 5:

If you're happy with the shape, you can leave it on the map as long as you like, and it will remain there until you delete it.

Or, you can choose to save it as a site in your sites pipeline, so you can progress it through your normal processes.

Hit Convert to site and simply type out a site name, then hit the save button.

Step 6:

Don't need the shape anymore? Simply click the bin icon in the Object Specs box to remove it.
