There are 3 tabs to select projects from:

Figure 3. The Project three tabs
  • ACTIVE PROJECT: shows the currently active project, if any

  • YOUR PROJECTS: lists all projects in your account created by any member of your team. This includes both the active project and the non-active projects.

  • SAMPLE PROJECTS: there are example projects.

Find the card of the project you want to delete.

Use the search box at the top of the page

To make it easier to find the project you are looking for, you can:

  • Use the search box at the top of the page to filter the list.

  • And/or use the sort button next to the search box to sort the projects alphabetically on their name

Step 3: Press the 'Delete' button on the project card

Press the delete button in the right bottom corner of the project card.

A confirmation dialog will be shown as deleting a project cannot be undone.

Figure 5. The confirmation dialog

In the confirmation dialog, you also have to indicate if the platform needs to delete all datasets, background data and areas of interest that are only used in that particular project.

For example if you have a world.geojson background map that is included in the project you are about to delete and another project, that background map won’t be deleted.

But if the dataset used in the project you are about to delete is not used in any other projects, it will be deleted as well.

If you don’t want this behavior, unselect the checkbox before confirming that the project must be deleted.
