Map Studio

I created a polygon in Map Studio of a proposed Rx Burn we have but it will not save as a new Landscape for me, I hit the create button and nothing happens. How long does it take to create a Landscape?

Also Tim we can't yet create a landscape based on a polygon.  You can create the polygon and then see it on the landscape and generate a summary report of just the area within the polygon using the Landscape Summary Card and then selecting the polygon as an Area of interest in your dropdown menu.  First you have to create a rectangular landscape that encompasses your proposed Rx Burn area.  I hope this helps.


Hi Tim,

 If the issue is saving the polygon we have a one page walk-through on that here:

But if that process still doesn't work for you, definitely follow up on here and we'll see if its something process related, or if it could be a bug.
