How can I add or edit fields?

Once you've added a farm, you can add fields to the farm by uploading or drawing field boundaries.

 

 

How to upload field boundaries?

 

Field boundaries can be uploaded to Atfarm by importing Shapefiles (SHP). You can upload one KML, GML, KMZ, SAM Internet or ZIP file at a time. The Shapefile (ZIP) can only contain SHP, SHX, DBF and PRJ files. Please adhere to the maximum and minimum field and upload sizes when uploading fields.

 

You can usually obtain a file of your field boundaries from the local authority that registers field boundaries. Alternatively, you may be able to download them from your farm management software.

 

 

Upload field boundaries to Atfarm as follows:

 

  1. Log in to Atfarm.
  2. Click on the farm you want to add a field to.
  3. Click Add fields at the bottom.
  4. Click Upload shapefiles below the map.
  5. Click Upload your file select the files you want to upload from your computer, or drag and drop them into the upload page.
  6. You should now see the uploaded field boundaries on the map.
    • If the location of your field isn't correct, change the coordinate system with the arrows until the field location is correct.
    • If the upload fails, please try to upload the file again. If the upload still fails, please contact our support team and send us the file you're trying to upload.
  7. Click Confirm.
  8. A confirmation about the success of the upload appears and informs about how many fields and hectares were added.
