Here's how to get started:

  1. Search for your plot of land using our convenient Address Search feature.
  2. Left click on the map to start plotting points.
  3. You'll notice the Area and Perimeter of the highlighted area will be calculated and displayed on the fly.
  4. Manipulate the overlays as needed.
  5. Additional features include the ability to:
    1. Reset the map
    2. Create multiple overlays
    3. Create a pre-defined shape
    4. Share the map
    5. Import/Export to map to/from a file

We've tried to make overlay manipulation as user-friendly as possible. Follow these guidelines if needed:

  1. Click on the map to place a marker.
  2. Delete a point by right clicking on it and selecting the option in the ensuing context menu.
  3. Drag a point to move it.
  4. Click on a line to insert a point onto the line.
  5. Move an overlay by dragging its center anchor.
  6. To rotate an overlay, drag it's rotation icon to the desired degree, or simply right click it's anchor and select the option in the ensuing context menu.
  7. Delete, label or select an overlay by right clicking on it's anchor and selecting the option in the ensuing context menu.
  8. Right click on a line to set it's length to a specified distance. The distance is changed using the older of the line's vertices as the starting point.

A Cutout is a special overlay that is used to highlight areas of land that you do not want included in the calculations, such as flower beds or trees. The area of a cutout is subtracted from the total area, and the perimeter is omitted. To place a cutout, simply:

  1. Create a new overlay
  2. Place the overlay over the area that you would like omitted. This should be placed over an exising overlay.
  3. Right click on the overlay's midpoint and select 'Switch to/from cutout'.
  4. The overlay will now be set as a cutout, indicated by red pins.
  5. If you'd like to switch it back to a normal overlay, select the same option from the context menu.

For convenience, we offer the option to create a pre-defined shape with user-specified measurements. To do so:

  1. Select 'Pre-Defined Shape' from the menu on the side panel.
  2. Select the shape you desire and enter it's dimensions in the unit of your choice.
  3. The shape will appear in the center of the map as an overlay.
  4. It can then be manipulated as per usual.
