Alerts How-To Guide
Register for an Account
Anyone can view Alerts on the map for free, but some features require you to create an account. For example, if you would like to subscribe to receive email notifications or want to annotate and save a map, we need to be able to connect you to a specific account. Also, we require you to create an account for services we pay for, such as satellite imagery.
NOTE: If you subscribed to SkyTruth’s original Alerts service, all of your areas of interest (AOIs) were brought into the new system. You will continue to receive emails but will need to create an account if you want to update or delete old AOIs, or create new ones. When creating your account, use the same email address you used in the original Alerts or your AOIs will be lost.
