SmarterWX uses polygons to represent the region of a capital works project or exclusion zone. If you represent your data as points or lines you can still load it into SmarterWX. SmarterWX will automatically convert your data to polygons when it is loaded.
By default all points or lines will be buffered by a radius of 20m when loaded.
If you would like to choose your own buffer distance include the attribute BufferDist in your dataset for each feature. The BufferDist must be a numeric value between 1m and 50m. Any feature that does not have a value for BufferDist will be allocated the default value.
