Do you struggle to understand the area which your client is trying to explain? You could be a drone pilot who need to know the exact location of where you need to video, or it could be some boundary issue that needs highlighting or a crop to spray.
Zone Marker enables the website user to mark out the exact area that is under discussion, then emails the details to the site admin so you can view the area and make informed decisions on how to proceed. This could be to formulate a quote or just to help make plans.
Use the shortcode [zonemarker] in your page or post.
This is still in development. But expect the options to choose the email address of the recipient. The ability to change the colours of the zone marker. The option to choose the point markers.
