Add lines, shapes, and text

Lines and shapes can be added to your map in a few quick steps, and can represent different types of assets that you’ll add to your map depending on the Unearth toolkit you use. You can also use text to label any asset on the map, or as a standalone asset. Here’s how you get that all onto your map.

1. Click on the plus button in your taskbar on the left of your screen.
