Shapes and Food Plots

Creating Food Plots and different shapes to outline areas can help identify areas of importance that are larger than a single point. This is especially useful, for example, when you are looking to measure and understand the area of a food plot to order seeds to plant or outline an area to cut back to put in a new plot.

To add boundary shapes or food plots simply follow these steps:

1. Select the “+”, (Add to Map Menu) option from the bottom of the Maps page

2. The menu offers an option to “Add Shape/Food Plot”

3. An “Add a Shape” banner will appear at the top of the page

4. To create the boundary, start tapping the borders of your desired area

5. Close, Undo, and Save are options to select from at the bottom of the page a. Close – select if option was chosen by mistake b. Undo – will remove the last point added to the map c. Save – will provide an option to name the boundary added

Creating a Shape

To get started, tap the Add to Map Menu. This will open the menu and display the various tools available to choose from.

Tap the map to add points to create your shape.

Tap Save when complete. This will open Give this Area a name view.

    I'm with Chuck. How the hell do you remove these things!? Adding stuff is cool, but being unable to remove anything is bonkers.

    It took me some experimenting, but I did eventually figure it out.  

    IF you are using the app:  Tap on the marker you want to remove, then tap on the “More” icon.  The “Delete this marker” option will be at the bottom of the menu.

    IF you are using a computer/laptop:  Click on the marker you want to remove, then the trash can icon at the bottom of the menu.

    Hope this helps

    Figured it out. Tape the search magnifying glass. Then scroll through your list of markers and look for the icons for shapes/plots. Tap it. The rest is pretty self explanatory.
