Mobble Maps

Mbble maps are a handy way to navigate your farm in Mobble. Read on to find out where to start with adding your paddock boundaries, and all the things you can do with Mobble Maps. But first, two things to note:

  • Adding and editing paddock boundaries is best done via the Mobble web-app
  • Mobble's mobile app can access and use these maps on and offline

To begin mapping paddocks in Mobble, log into the Mobble web-app in your browser here.

If you've got an existing map file (KML, Shapefile, Geojson), send it through to us at and we can upload it for you.

If you'd rather skip maps for now, you can add your paddocks in from the paddocks page using the plus button in the bottom right.

  1. ‍To access the mapping tool: select Map from the menu on the left
  2. To Zoom: use the scroll wheel on your mouse or the Plus and Minus buttons in the bottom left
  3. To move around: click and drag the map
  4. To centre the property: select the Centre button (two arrows on the left).
