Administration > Areas - Creating a new zone

To create a new zone, click the Add new button in the list of areas. Remember to select Zones in the Show selector.

You will be shown the following panel:

You will start by entering the General parameters of the zone. Then, you will specify how that zone will show on the Map.

General

The general parameters are the following:

  • Geometry
    Choose Circle or Polygon. Circular zones are defined by their center and a radius. Polygonal zones are defined by a series of vertices. You will be able to specify later on where the zone is to be located and its size/shape.
  • Zone name
    Click to add a designation to this zone
  • Color
    Zones are shown on the map as a semitransparent area. You can define here the color of that semi-transparency.

Once you have entered the general parameters above, click the Map row on the left. You will now be able to enter the exact location and shape of the zone.

If you defined in the General parameters that the zone will be a Circle, then you will now be able to draw that circle. If on the other hand you defined that the zone will be a Polygon, you will now be able to draw that polygon.

On the right side of the map you will see which shape is currently selected:

Button  Shape
Circle
Polygon

Before you draw the zone, zoom and drag the map until you see the area where the zone will be put.

Once you have done that, click the Circle or Polygon button (the one that applies in your case).

To create a circular zone:

After you click the button, you will be asked to click on the exact location where the center of the zone will be; and then drag to define the radius.

If you want to edit the circle you just created, click the edit button:

 

You will be able to change both the center and radius of the circle.

If on the other hand you want to remove the circle you are creating, click the trash button

and then click on the circle to remove it. To confirm, click Apply. To keep the circle and not delete it, click Cancel.

In the end, remember to click the Save button on the top right, to store all the Zone's parameters.

To create a polygonal zone:

After you click the button, you will be asked to click on the exact location of each vertex of the polygon. To close the shape, click again the initial vertex or click the Finish option.

If you want to edit the polygon you just created, click the edit button:

 

You will be able to drag and drop each vertex of the original polygon. You can also remove vertices by clicking on them (without dragging).

If on the other hand you want to remove the polygon you are creating, click the trash button

and then click on the polygon to remove it. To confirm, click Apply. To keep the polygon and not delete it, click Cancel.

In the end, remember to click the Save button on the top right, to store all the Zone's parameters.
