Adding a new area

There are a number of ways of adding areas to your Ground Signal Account. If it's your first time drawing an area , you will be taken to the map view prompting you to search area you wish to add.

In the search bar, type in a place of interest. This location can be anywhere in the world. It can be as specific as an address, or as broad as a country.

After entering the location you wish to draw in the search bar, you will need to select the exact place from the drop-down menu. You can do so my using your mouse or simply using the up and down arrows on your keyboard. 

You will then be dropped to your selected area on the map with a radius surrounding the location.

You can adjust the radius of your geofence by dragging the squares. You can drag the entire radius by dragging the square in the middle.


If you'd prefer to customize your geofence, select the draw icon at the right hand side of the page. Then, begin to draw your location by clicking and drawing on the map.

Note: Be sure not to overlap any parts of your polygon, as you will then be prompted to re-draw your area.

Once you’ve finished geofencing your area, select “Start Exploring” at the bottom of your screen.


After clicking “Start Exploring”, you will see the name of the area you searched appear as your area name. Select "Save" to save your area. You can always edit that name to something more specific. 

Within an area

Another way to add a new geofence is directly within an area. This is only possible after you’ve already had at least one area. To do so, simply select the green plus sign + next to your area name located at the top left side of your screen. 

Account Details

The third way to add a new area to your account is through the Area page located in your Account Details. To access this page, hover over the User Initial icon at the top right corner of your screen.

From here, select "Account Details" from the drop-down menu.

Then, select the Area page on the left-side navigation bar.

Click the “Add Area” button.


Area Page

To add an area, simply select the “Add Area” thumbnail, which is highlighted in green and located as the first square on the page.
