To add your first field, click the button Add Field in the upper left corner:
You can either import your field from the John Deere Operations Center or add it manually by filling in the given form. Enter the field name, location, and description.
The field’s location doesn’t have to be too precise, as it will be adjusted automatically based on the data from the georeferenced map. The purpose of entering a location is just to allow you to quickly find your fields and analyses when you log in the next time.
Once you save the changes you’ll be asked to create a boundary for your field. This is not a mandatory step but is recommended (Later, when requesting analyses it would shorten the process by one step).
To create a field boundary, type the field location in the search bar and the map will be zoomed to that area. Use the zoom-in option from the left menu to pinpoint the field location even more. In the left menu, there is a button to draw a polygon. Just hold the left mouse button and pull the cursor in the preferred directions to mark the boundaries of your field.
You can also import a polygon from your computer and it has to be a zipped folder containing SHP or KML files.
Once you draw a field boundary and confirm it, you cannot delete it. However, you can delete the whole field by clicking on the Delete option in the field list.
If you create a field and close the app before making a boundary, you will find the Add Boundary button in the Edit option of the field list.
