Landkind has a number of great tools that help you explore your map. If you are just getting started with Landkind, ensure you have read our guide for new users here.

Desktop Tools

The search bar allows you to navigate to a property. You can search either using the Name of the Property or its address.

If the Search by option is not available for your organisation and you would like it, then Contact Us.

  1. Hover on the house icon at the top of the side bar

  2. Click the arrow to show the search bar

  3. Enter the property name or address to surface the search results

  4. Click on the title to navigate to the property

  5. Repeat to switch between properties

You can also click on the property if you see it displayed either on the map or on the property list, without needing to use the search function.

Rotate Map

Right mouse click on the map and drag that map to rotate. A left click on the map allows you to move around the area. Click on the compass widget (top right of your screen) to reset to the original North orientation.

Location Widget

Takes you to your location on the map if you have allowed the app to access your location.
