Intro: ROCK Planimetrics

Step by step guide to ordering planimetrics and what you'll receive when you do.

How To Order Planimetrics From The ROCK Marketplace

Choosing What to Process

Prior to ordering the deliverables from the Rock Cloud, select the area you want processed for  your deliverables using the area tool (see picture below). For example, you have a 500 acre forest that has a road running through it. Instead of ordering planimetrics for the whole space, select the area of interest with the road to save some tokens!
  • To process the entire dataset follow the "Placing Your Order" steps below without creating an enhanced area.
  • To run a smaller subset area of your dataset create an enhanced area by:
    • Use the "measure area" tool in the top right (square icon).
    • Draw your area of interest.
    • Click the image icon to the left of the trash bin on that measurement to make this measurement and "enhanced area."

Placing Your Order

Be sure you have all the GCP's you want for the dataset upload PRIOR to placing your planimetrics order. If you process planimetrics and then wish to upload more GCP's you will need to contact ROCK Support for manual processing costs.

  • Go the ROCK Marketplace by clicking the green "process" bar in the bottom of the left pane.
  • Click "Order" on the ROCK Planimetrics Item.
  • Run with either the enhanced area or the entire dataset.
  • Select your scale from the "Planimetric Scale" option menu (The scale you select will impact tokens per acre cost).
    • Depending on the scale level you select certain features will/will not be included. For instance: at 1" = 20' a paint stripe will be marked whereas 1" = 100' scale will not mark the paint stripe. See ROCK Planimetrics for a table illustrating what features are included at various scales.
  • Choose whether the dataset contains urban, rural, semi-urban features (this will impact the tokens per acre cost).
    • You will be notified and your selection will be adjusted if the AI engine sees you made the wrong selection (you chose rural and the dataset is downtown Las Vegas).

  • Review your Order Summary for pricing breakdown and the delivery estimate of your order.

Please ensure the acreage being processed meets your expecations. If you need to delete acreage or adjust your enhanced area polygons do so BEFORE you place your order. We are unable to refund tokens used. If you need to trim the acreage being processed delete points by following the steps here: delete points from the cloud. Please do not ask for an ETA of your deliverables until you are on the last day of your estimate.  See also: Order ETA
