Safeland app tips: Meet your location tools featuresWilly Simonsson
The Safeland map is central to local collaboration and incident reporting. To help make sure you can be as accurate as possible when posting in Safeland, familiarise yourself with these four helpful location tools.
1) The magnifying glass
Press the magnifying glass to manually search for the place or address you want to set the post to.
2) Approx location
Ticking the “approx location” box will show the event as a circle, rather than a pin with a pointer. This is handy for situations when a general area is affected by a post, or when you don’t want to single out a residents home in events such as burglaries, etc.
3) The pencil
If you want to edit an address, simply tap the pencil icon. You can add location information, for example “Basketball courts” or perhaps remove some address information for privacy reasons.
4) The arrow
This is a handy tool if you are at the location where the post you’re creating took place, but the map has not updated to your position. Simply press the arrow to center the map to your position using the phone’s GPS.
We hope these little tips further enhance your Safeland experience.
