Mapping a Location

Safe Ag Systems provides the ability to map locations, which enables you to geo map the boundaries of your properties and mark the location of hazards. This tutorial will guide you through how to map the boundaries of you

The location function is linked to multiple areas of the Safe Ag Systems app, so it is important to map your locations early on in your system setup. For example, Emergency Plan information is entered specifically for a particular location, the On Site/Off Site function relies on the setting of location boundaries in order to track what property your employees are situated on.

If you have multiple locations that are geographically separated, you are required to map these in separate location tiles.
