How To Select A
POLYGON Ministry Area Boundary
DEFINITION: A Polygon is simply a closed area bounded
by several lines.
If you have a pre-defined ministry area such as a parish boundary or the area you want to study isn't well defined by either a RADIUS BOUNDARY or a ZIP CODE BOUNDARY, you may want to provide us with a POLYGON BOUNDARY, which is a lot simpler than it sounds. A polygon is a closed boundary with as many line sections as you wish. With our interactive map tool all you do is move your cursor to successive points on the map and click your left mouse button. Make sure your last click is on top of your first click. This will close your polygon. It can be helpful to follow existing lines such as roads, highways, rivers and coastlines, but you don't have to. Most people who have used our online tool draw polygon boundaries with eight or fewer clicks.
 
As you can see, there are several options for defining the area you want study. Each one is simple. And, there are no bad choices, because either option will tell you a lot about the people you have an opportunity to serve and point you in the right direction.
