How to Draw Your Landscape Boundary

Even without a GeoJSON file, you can still place your landscape boundary on the map by digitally drawing it using Terraso’s tool!

Tip: Use this icon at the top right of the map to explore different map layers: satellites, streets, etc…

  1. Find your landscape’s general location on the map. You can either
    • Use the search bar at the top of the map. Start by typing in a city, town, region, or even an exact address!
    • Use your mouse/trackpad to drag the map and zoom in/out.
  1. Begin drawing your landscape boundary
    • Click the “draw a polygon” tool on the left side of the map. Now, when you click on a spot on the map, the tool marks that spot as part of your landscape boundary!
    • Continue drawing your landscape boundary by clicking on the map, and move/zoom in/out around the map as needed.
  2. Finish your boundary drawing, either by
    • Clicking on the first point you made, or
    • Clicking “Close Shape” next to the “draw a polygon” tool icon.
Make sure you click the “Add Landscape”/”Update Map” button below the map to upload your landscape boundary to your Terraso landscape page!

Editing Your Landscape Boundary Drawing

  1. Click the “Edit polygon” tool on the left side of the map. With this tool, you can:
    • Click a translucent (lighter colored) point to add more points.
    • Click an opaque (darker colored) point to remove it.
    • Drag any point to adjust the shape.
  2. Click “Save” to save your changes, or “Cancel” to reverse any changes and exit the “Edit polygon” tool.

Deleting Your Landscape Boundary Drawing

  1. Click the “Delete polygon” tool on the left side of the map. With this tool, you can:
    • Delete a specific polygon by clicking on it, or
    • Delete all polygons by clicking “Clear All.”
  2. Click “Save” to save your changes, or “Cancel” to reverse any changes and exit the “Delete polygon” tool.
