Remine Quick Tip: Using the Map Drawing Tools

These easy tips will help you become a Remine Pro!

One of the main benefits of Remine is the ability to visually interpret data on a map. This article will help you understand how to master the drawing tools on Remine’s map-based search.

In order to narrow your results or target certain geographies, you will want to use Remine’s Map Drawing Tools. Before you try using these tools make sure you’re zoomed in on the map enough to see the blue property dots on the map. If you need help with the zoom tools click here for a quick tutorial and video.

There are four small white boxes with icons at the top of the map. Each one contains an icon: a hand, a circle, a square/rectangle, and a polygon. These are your geographical filters/map draw tools.

Pro Tip #1: You can draw more than one shape on the map at a time.4 icons

Pro Tip #2: If you draw a shape that extends beyond your current zoom settings, Remine will only track the properties that are within the visible map at the time you click Track All.

Below you will find the function of each of the tools. Following the description is an animation that demonstrates how to use them.

Hand Tool

 

The Hand Tool: Usage

This tool allows you to drag the map around. This is your default setting; it is in place when you open Remine. If you navigate to a location, apply filters, and click Track All, Remine will track all the filtered properties that are visible in the current map view.

Any time you move the map, the number of results in the upper-right corner of the map will change. This reflects the number of blue dots that are visible in your current map view.

Here’s an animation to demonstrate the Hand Tool:
