It’s the time of year for plotting: plotting out where to plant our tomatoes, plotting to “borrow” our friend’s fishing boat, plotting the demise of that mosquito that bit us, and plotting to ambush the wastewater department with nerf-guns when they are least expecting it.
If all that plotting isn’t enough for you, we’ve also added coordinate plotting to your GIS as of the last upgrade. If you look at your Markup tab, you should notice a “Plot Coordinates” button. Click it to bring up the Plot Coordinates side panel.
Clicking on the map will plot that point visually on the map, and show you the coordinates in the side panel. Conversely, coordinates can be typed into the side panel to plot their location on the map.
Once you have some coordinates plotted, you can stop plotting by clicking “Cancel.”
Coordinate points can be hidden, edited, or deleted through the three-dots menu to the right of each plotted coordinate. Batch editing is available through the hamburger menu in the top right of the Plot Coordinates side panel.
Additionally, you can change the coordinate system used to display your coordinates via the “Coordinate System” dropdown. (Note: The conversion between different coordinate systems is good enough for approximation, but should not be used for survey-grade measurements or plots)
Now that you know how to plot coordinates in your GIS map, you can resume plotting total world domination.
