New to HawkEye®  and don’t have a farm map?

Drawing your paddocks

The Create tab is where you will enter paddocks details, but first you need to draw your paddock boundaries.

  • On your farm map, select My Farm > Create
  • Click on draw boundaries or start drawing
  • Point your mouse at the first corner of your new paddock and left-click
  • Drag the blue line to the next corner and left-click again
  • Continue to do this on all corners until the boundary is complete
  • Select finish to finalise the shape of your paddock

Paddock details

You will now be prompted to fill in all the required fields on the Create tab: name, effective area, soil type, vegetation, and topography. This is also where you can assign your new paddock to a block.

Once you are happy that all paddock details are correct, click save. Your new paddock will be added to your map. You can draw more paddocks, and repeat until your map is complete

Mapping services

We've done our best to make creating your own paddocks simple (and fun) but understand that your time is precious.

If you are using another farm mapping system, and have the required shapefiles, we can upload your paddock data to HawkEye. We'll even draw your map if you have an image, PDF, or hard-copy of your farm to work from.

For the best experience in HawkEye, we recommend using Google Chrome.
