Create a buffer
Create a custom buffer around lines, subs, markers, polylines and polygons for a variety of uses.

Create buffer polygon

  • Identify the object you'd like to create a buffer around (in this case let's focus on a polyline)
  • Right-click the object on the map
  • In the pop up, click on the Create Buffer section to expand the input fields
  • In the 'Create Buffer' section, input the buffer distance and select the desired unit in the dropdown
  • Click Create to generate a buffer polygon on the map
You can create a buffer around most objects on the map including drawings (polylines, polygons, markers etc) and assets (transmission or distribution lines, substations, parcels etc).
