“Help! Why can’t I see my landmarks on the map?” Ensure the Landmarks toggle is turned on.

The boundary that you set up for a landmark can exist as a circle or a polygon.

  • Circle – The default shape for a landmark boundary is a circle. The default radius is determined by your current zoom level. Circle landmarks are typically sufficient for most tasks (i.e., report labels, map filters, turn-by-turn directions, and so on).
  • Polygon – Polygons allow you to define a more precise boundary by tracing an outline around a specific area (up to 256 vertices). Polygon landmarks are more often used when the exclusion or inclusion of specific perimeters is important, such as when sending alerts when a vehicle enters or exits a specific location. In the figure below, an alert based on this landmark would not trigger if the vehicle was simply driving by the location (street), but it would if the vehicle enters the building’s service roads / parking lot (enclosed in the borders of the landmark).
