My name is Emma, I am one of the Community Managers here at
SeeClickFix. We can certainly create these types of watch areas
with shape files. If you send them to us as contact @ seeclickfix .
com we'd be happy to upload them.
If you're hoping to alert certain public officials within these
areas about problems you and your neighbors are reporting, we can
also help you sign them up to receive alerts about all issues
within these areas once we create them. Just let us know, we'd be
happy to help!
Thanks so much for your message and we'll keep an eye out for
your shapefiles. If there is anything else we can do to help you,
please do not hesitate to let us know.

Thanks for the reply (and for giving the right answer :-) --
though it would also be nice to be able to do this ourselves ;-) ).
What about a multi-polygon watch area--is that possible? And, if
so, will you be able to simply create that from the multiple
records in a shapefile or do they all need to be part of the same
My pleasure, glad to help! Unfortunately, we are unable to
create multi-polygon watch areas for users. We can however create
multiple watch areas from multi record shape files, as long as its
clear how/what to name the shapes. At this time we can only create
multi-polygon watch areas for our government clients.
Again, please let me know if you have any additional questions
or if you would like us to create those areas using your shape
