This section describes how to create a marker's shape and access paths using the new marker shape tools, which are currently in beta. If you are using the legacy marker shape tools, see the Legacy Shape Tab page.
The Shape tab lets you specify the location, type, size, and shape of a marker. By default, new markers are circles but you can change the shape to a polygon. The Shape tab also lets you create access paths from and to a marker.
Click the location (latitude and longitude coordinates of the center of the marker) text to open a contextual menu. The options shown on this menu are:
- Find nearest vehicles.
- Add as route stop.
- Find activity near here.
- Copy to clipboard.
- Go to link (if your account configuration allows this). This option opens the map centered on a location specified by an administrator, overriding the actual location of the marker (see LatLonLink for more information about this right).
Click the Edit button to place the Shape tab into Edit mode, then follow the instructions that are displayed in the dialog box. These instructions guide you through the process of:
- Editing a Circle Marker
- Changing a Circle Marker to a Polygon Marker
- Editing a Polygon Marker
- Changing a Polygon Marker to a Circle Marker
- Adding an Access Path
