Possibility to rotate project area in Forma

Hi, 

 

I have a trapezium shape site, and its tilted when I select the project area when i start the project.  Is there a chance to rotate the site area? since there is a 2km x 2km limit on forma, and due to the shape of the site, I end up having areas where i don't require in the selection, and areas that I need that are out of that selection area.

Hi!

 

Rotating the site area is unfortunately not supported. The site area will be axis-aligned to the main axes of the UTM zone that covers the project location. We use UTM projection in the map in project setup, and that is what causes the site to appear tilted. (The more technical term for this phenomenon is "grid convergence".)

 

 

Best regards,
