Video Intro to the Precinct App
Precinct works based on comparing geometry drawn on separate drawing layers.
Create a new Drawing Layer using the New Layer button in the draw palette.
This creates a new layer and sets it to the 'Active Layer'. All geometries you create will be created on the currently active layer.
Giraffe Urban Calculations shows the areas for all layers that are on. To show areas for different options turn the layers you don't want to consider to fully invisible. (You'll see a closed eye icon).
Remember you can use views to control layer visibility! Layers can be used in the normal view and also in the 3D view.

Example of a single parcel:
<aside> 💡 Note: Precinct will count geometry fully contained within the polygon you set with the lotNumber property. If you move geometry from one parcel to another, precinct will recognize that geometry in the new parcel only.
Use the Precinct app to organize the geometry you added to drawing layers into side-by-side Scenarios to make metric comparisons.
