Edit Root Protection Area
Updated: Mar 29
A sensitive and debatable one this but in reality often considered necessary. Portable Mapper provide the tools and on screen guidance to edit the Tree's Root Protection Area but we leave the final decision to you, the professional.
Editing is done the same way as for all other map objects however when Portable Mapper detects the RPA is being edited a few extra functions kick in to play. The most important being an on screen popup that appears when the original RPA area has been exceeded or reduced by more than 1% ( This can be changed ). Populated with and live updated with the calculated and current RPA area the user is kept informed of the consequences of each edit.
