Importing Field Boundaries Process

  1. Select Import and choose Upload Files
  2. Choose Field Boundary as the Data Type and the appropriate template as the Format Type from the drop-down menus. 
    • When selecting the Data Type, a Supported File Types bar displays illustrating file types that may be imported for the chosen type of data. 
  3. Browse to select a file(s) or drag and drop the file(s) in the designated area and choose Upload.
    Note: When importing files, all three file types included with a shape file – .DBF, .SHX, and .SHP – must be selected. Alternatively, a zip file containing several shape files may also be selected. 
  4. Once the boundary file(s) are loaded and ready for import, highlight a file and select the Ellipsis icon in the Field Boundaries area. Choose Import Single File or highlight multiple files, select the Ellipsis icon, and choose Import Selected to batch import boundary files. 
  5. Optionally select the Ellipsis icon for each Field and enter the information in the Edit Field Boundary window. This is only required if a Grower or Field is not present in the file or if changes need made.
    Note: File names displaying in black text indicate no overlapping issues. File names displaying in yellow text indicate a Field with an overlapping boundary which will need corrected. File names displaying in red indicate an issue with a value that needs addressed prior to proceeding. 
  6. Choose Save. An error message displays if required fields are not completed. 
  7. Select Add Field. The Field will be linked to the Agvance Hub as indicated by the checkmark in the Mapping column of the Field Selection window and is visible in the Customer Field list.
    Note: If using a template, the customer information autofills from Agvance and will not require adding the Customer Name, Farm Name, and Field Name(s).
