Creating a New Area

The first thing you need to do when starting a piece of work is to create a new area in area selection dropdown that covers the area of interest. This save a lot of time, as you don’t have to continually zoom in from larger areas each time you open a new window.

1) Click on the “climate scenario” button (Figure 1 above)

2) Zoom into the area you want to have as your new area, from the existing area using the normal zoom function.

3)Use the "Generate Area" button (on the images toolbar) to create a new area, specifying name, abbreviation, resolution and copying all info. This area will then become available at the dropdown box in the area selection.
