Importing images into FieldAgent

FieldAgent - Importing Images

Images can be imported into FieldAgent on both the Web and Desktop. After syncing to the Cloud, imagery will be viewable in FieldAgent on Web, Desktop, and iOS.
Advantages to both options:
  1. Importing into FieldAgent on Desktop does not require a previously created Field Boundary and allows users to import into multiple fields at once.
  2. Importing into FieldAgent on the Web does not require a Windows PC.

Viewing Permissions

Imagery can be seen by:
  1. The account that uploaded the data.
  2. Accounts that have access to the field the imagery was uploaded to.

Importing on the Web (Mac friendly)

To import on the Web:
  1. In a Web browser, navigate to

  3. Click + to the right of Map Layers on the field page.

  4. Drag and drop photos from your flight into FieldAgent.
  5. Click Upload and wait for your images to upload. You'll receive an email when your images have finished processing.

      3. You can add more image surveys by importing additional folders at any time.

NOTE: Toggle whether to import a survey by clicking the check box next to the survey name

New Field Creation

If you do not have a field boundary for your image survey, FieldAgent will begin to create one for you. New fields will show up with a field name of UNKOWN and will have a yellow warning icon. 

To finish creating a new field:
      1. Click the Arrow Icon  by the yellow warning icon to finish setting up a new field
      2. Only a Field Name is required to complete setting up your field. You can also add grower and farm information on the left side of the screen.

      3. Optionally, you can edit the field boundary on the right side of the screen. Click EDIT to begin the process.

          The field boundary is shown by the blue shape which surrounds the image dots.                     
            To edit the field boundary: 
            • Use the straight arrow button    to shrink and expand the shape of your field boundary.
            • Use the curved arrow button  to rotate the shape of the field boundary.
            • Use the cross hairs  at the center of your field to move the boundary.
            • Click and drag any of the white dots around the end of the field to change the shape itself.
            • Click on the edge of the field to add more dots.
            • select DONE When you’re finished editing the field boundary.

      4. Click SAVE on the left side of the screen to finalize your new field. 

Import Settings

      1. Click the three dots  above the survey information to change import settings for all surveys.

      2. Toggle any setting to turn it on or off. 

      3. Optionally, add notes at the bottom of the page. These notes will be connected to every survey imported in this session.

Survey Settings

      1. Click the Arrow Icon   in the Survey information section, to adjust settings for each individual survey.

      2. Under survey details, click the X button to remove an image type from the import            

      3. Click the + button to add the image type back into the survey.

      4. Adjust the Image Select Buffer by using the slider in the top left corner.
NOTE: The image select buffer is shown by the shaded area around the field boundary. The buffer can be between 0 ft and 300 ft. By Default, its set to 300ft which means that any image dot within 300 ft of the field boundary will be included in this survey.

         Green Dots mean the image is included, Red dots mean the image is excluded, and white dots are the calibration panel images. Calibration Panel Imagery will import regardless of whether its within the selection buffer.
      Clicking on a dot will toggle it between green and red.

      5. Click SAVE on the left side of the screen to confirm your survey settings.

      6. Click CREATE IMPORT on the right side of the screen to finish the import process.
