Add a Zone

You can use zones:

  • To create layers that show real-time data as colors
  • To create navigation using clickable areas that open other pages and panels

To create a zone:

  1. Click Build or Manage Dashboards.

  2. In the Project Tree, click the gray or white button next to a location node.


    White buttons indicate that a page or pop-up exists, and gray buttons indicate that you haven't created one yet.

    The location page editor opens.

  3. Add an image if you have not already done so.
  4. Select the Zones tab.
  5. Use the drop-down menu to select the layer group for the zone.

    For example, if this zone is for navigation and a temperature overlay, select Temperature. If you are not sure which group to select, see Layer Manager.

  6. Add zone polygons to the image:
    1. Select the Draw Zone tool.
    2. Draw the zone:
      • Click to add vertices.
      • Double-click to add the last vertex and finish the shape.
      • Right-click anywhere in the canvas to undo the last vertex.

    3. If needed, click the Edit Zone tool and edit the zone:
      • Double-click to add a new vertex.
      • Right-click a vertex to delete it.
      • Drag a vertex to move it.

    4. If needed, use the Vertex Size control to make vertices easier to edit.

    5. If needed, delete and copy zones:
      • To delete a zone, choose the Select tool, and then right-click the zone and select Delete.
      • To copy a zone in order to paste it in another layer, right-click the zone and select Copy.
  7. At any time, you can click the Widgets tab and then click Submit to save your changes to this page.
