Position of Zone Reference Point

  • If you place the Zone Stamp with one of the automatic recognition methods, you will see a cross appear inside the Zone at the location that you first clicked to define the Zone’s area. This cross indicates the reference point of the Zone. This point is used as the starting point of boundary recognition for subsequent updating actions.
