Adding and editing your own areas of interest

You can draw and save an area of interest using the measurement tools. This area will be available to all users in your organisation or group and can be used for filtering and analysis.

Tip: Once you have drawn your area, ready to be saved, you can copy the web link (URLs) to return to it later.

This might be important for carefully drawn areas that you would like to keep a record of in case it is edited later. Learn more: Sharing or saving your analysis.

You can edit the coordinates, name, description, and colour of any saved areas in your organisation or group. The creation of an area, and any changes to that area, are shown on your organisation’s activity page.

Areas you create and save cannot currently be used for filtering speed or for alerts. If this is important for your area of interest, the Starboard team can create the area for you organisations instead. Just click on send a shape under manage areas.

Adding a temporary area for analysis using a .geojson

You can drag and drop .geojson files onto the map to add a temporary area of interest that is only visible to you.

The analysis will remain as you move around the map, select vessels and move through time but if you refresh or logout you will need to drag the .geojson back onto the map.

Try it out: Download the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Zoning .geojson from the Australian Government data site and navigate to Australia's east coast on the Starboard map.
