Map basics

There are many options to help you customise your printed map. The print menu open contains the following tools:

  • Title: name your map
  • Page: select your desired page size and orientation
  • Output type: either PDF (document) or PNG (image)
  • Draw print area: use the pencil to draw a rectangle around a specific area of your farm to print. This can be rotated, resized or moved as needed. You can also choose print extent of farm to auto draw a rectangle around the whole farm.

Select Print to preview your map. When you hover your mouse over the Print Preview to view rotation, downloading and print options or click Print at the bottom right.
