Everything you need to know to publish and share data.

Enable users to crop by region

By default, your site will allow users to crop spatial data using a drag-and-drop tool, called Box Crop. Data publishers can provide users with an additional option to crop polygon data by pre-defined regions, called Region Crop.

In this guide, we outline how to enable Region Crop on a newly imported data layer. If you wish to enable Region Crop on an already imported data layer, skip to step 6.

1

Navigate to site settings

Select Administration and then Site Settings from the main menu on the left of your screen.

2

Navigate to Crop Layers

From your Site Settings dashboard, click the Data, Metadata & Comments tab, and then select Crop Layers.

A crop layer is a dataset or data layer that users can crop by region.

3

Select your chosen polygon data

Click the drop-down menu to select your chosen polygon data layer.

4

Select crop label attribute and add layer

Finally, select your chosen crop label attribute. Note that this label attribute will be visible to end-users, who will use it to select which type of region-crop to apply.

Once you have chosen the label attribute, click Add crop layer.
