Sometimes you collect a little extra data or have some edges which aren't smooth. Here, we will explain how to crop your data to adjust the boundaries of your mapped area.
Please note that Cropping works best on Google Chrome.
In this tutorial, we'll be looking at the Example Data from the How to Process Datasets documentation.
- To start cropping, click on the map information icon.
- Then, select
Cropunder the Map Tools section.
This will show you the current border around a plan.
You now have several options.
Moving an Anchor
To move an anchor (and hence change the edge), click and drag one of the white dots to an appropriate location. We've selected the top right in this example.
You'll notice the data layer is automatically cropped to where this new anchor location.
Removing an Anchor
We have automatically created a few too many anchors for this map. To remove an anchor, just single click on the anchor you would like to remove (white dot). I've now thinned out and moved a few of the anchors.
Adding an Anchor
If we've stripped a few too many, you can add additional anchors by clicking on the semi-opaque anchors, and dragging it.
This will add an additional point.
Saving the Crop
The crop will be saved after each edit. Once you're happy with your crop, you can click the
crop button again to hide the markers and boundary.
