Field Information

To create a new field click on the new field button in the top right corner of the fields module. This will open a new field form

  • Name: The name of the field you are creating
  • Industry: As of now the only industry available is agriculture. this will be expanded in the future to include other industries and solutions.
  • Group: the group field is used to indicate which metrics you would like to analyze. You can view the available metrics in the agriculture page. Also when selecting a group it will show below the field group the available metrics for that group. Please make sure to select all groups that apply to your specific field's needs.
  • Analysis Date: The analysis date is the date you would like to analyze your field. This date has to be in the past and cannot be further than the year 2010. This is because historical satellite imagery is used to analyze your field and the imagery is only available for the past 10 years.

We are not responsible for erroneous analysis results due to incorrect analysis dates. Please make sure that the analysis date is correct. Sampling cannot be performed when there is snow on the ground, so please select dates when there wasn’t snow, otherwise your soil sampling will be inaccurate.

Field Location

The browser should prompt for your permission to use your location for you to easily locate your field. If not you can also use the latitude and longitude fields to input your field location. Or you can click on the “My Location” icon in the top right corner of the map to get you close to your farm.

To input a field location you will have to find your field on the map. Once you have zoomed in and found your field, click on the perimeter button in the top left corner of the map, and draw the field’s perimeter using points. If possible, please go around any sloughs, yards, trees, waterways, etc. that you would like to have excluded from the soil sampling. Use as many points as necessary to make your perimeter as accurate as possible. If the field is greater than 160 acres, then an additional field will need to be added. When the perimeter is complete, move your browser away from the last perimeter point, and the back over last perimeter point and a pointer will appear, click the last perimeter point with the mouse pointer to close out your field perimeter. Acres will be calculated automatically. If you would like to redraw your field, just click on the perimeter icon again, the original drawing will go blue, just ignore that, and continue with your new drawing, the old one will disappear after the second point.

Pricing and Plan

Pricing and plans may vary from time to time, and from region to region. Pricing is a base price for the package, and then an incremental price per acre that exceeding the base acres. All of this should be displayed on the pricing plans. As samples/acre rises, price rises. The number of acres calculated will increase precision. The total cost of the field displayed is in direct relation to the number of acres of your field.

Confirmation

A confirmation message will be displayed after you have successfully created a new field. You can view sampled acres which are represented by a pin on the map. You can still edit your field by clicking on the edit button on the confirmation message. Once analysis starts you will not be able to edit your field.
