In this video, we'll go over some best practices, general information, and how-to tips when setting up your geofences. AKA the hyper-targeted areas you want to identify where people have been, so we can serve those individuals ads for up to 30 days.
Tips for Navigating the Geofence Map
- Map and Terrain View:
- In the upper-left corner you can click on "Map," which will show you a navigation based map view. If you hover over "Map" you have the option to check "Terrain" which will add a terrain/topical feature to the map view.
- Satellite and Labels View:
- In the upper left corner of the map you can click on "Satellite," which will show you a satellite image based map view. If you hover over "Satellite" you have the option to uncheck "Lables," which will remove the text labels from the map. This is useful when drawing a geofence or trying to see the area more clearly.
- Street View:
- On the right side of the map, you'll see a little yellow person. You can click and drag that person to a road on the map that is highlighted in blue and drop him anywhere on that road. The screen will take you to a street view, which is a great way to see a location from the ground level. To exit Street View, simply click on the arrow pointing to the left in the upper-right corner.
- Full Screen View:
- In the upper-right corner of the map is a square icon made up of corner pieces. This will expand the map view to your full screen, allowing you to see a bigger map for easier navigation and visibility. To exit the full screen view, simply click the icon in the upper right corner with the four inverted faceing corners.
- 3D or Tilt Map View:
- Right below the full screen view icon is an icon with four solid squares. This gives you a tilted map or 3D view of the map for an extra detailed visualization.
- Zooming and Dragging Across the Map:
- In the lower right corner you have your "+" and "-" buttons to allow you to zoom in and out.
- To see parts of the map that are out of frame, simple left click, hold, and drag the mouse to move around the map.
