How do I Import Shape-file Boundaries?
Field Boundaries play an important role in all aspects of Pioneer® Field360™ Studio and Corteva Fields. Review the field boundaries each year as early as possible to avoid issues later in the year. Through Pioneer® Field360™ Studio, we can upload shapefiles, CSV's, or KML files exported from another service to establish these boundaries.
- Access to Pioneer® Field360™ Studio is required.
- Operation is created in Connex.
- To create a new Operation or add an existing operation to your Operation list, contact your Territory Manager, who will work with NAO Master Data to have the Operation added to your AAR.
- Shapefiles, CSV's, or KML boundary files exported from another service.
- In the Grower window, Select the Operation and Crop Year.
- Select the Setup drop-down menu.
- Select Import boundaries.
- In the boundary import window Select Add File or Add Folder to search for boundary files.
- At the lower right, Select the file type from the drop-down menu.
- Search the window that pops up for the file or folder that contains the boundary files.
- Select the boundary file or folder.
- Select Open.
- The boundary import window will populate all data from the boundary files at the right under the template window (above).
- Leave template at 'none.'
- For Spatial Match select one of the following options:
- None - imported boundaries will overlap with any existing boundaries that fit the same space.
- Ignore - imported boundaries will not be imported if they occupy the same space as an existing boundary.
- Overwrite - imported boundaries will replace any existing boundaries that fit in the same space.
- At the right, under the map to column, Select 'Do Not Copy' in the row that contains one of the attributes and map it to FarmName from the list of options.
- Repeat step 12, mapping a second attribute to to FieldName from the list of options.
NOTE: Depending on the source material, the appropriate choice for FarmName and FieldName may or may not be intuitive. Regardless, farm and field names must be mapped.
NOTE: Farm and Field names can be changed after boundaries are imported.
- Select Upload.
- Once the green status bar stops moving and files disappear form the boundary import window, the farm and field list in the domain window populates and field boundaries are visible on the map.
