The MyFarm Map Screen


Your online account is a powerful synthesis of map viewing software and farm management systems, that will give you the edge in properly maintaining both your farms and your machinery.

Your online account is effortless to navigate, visually appealing, and as you’ll come to see, incredibly easy to master.

Here are just some of the basics:

Viewing your data

At any one time your AgDNA platform is focused on a single account.

On the top far left of the screen you’ll see a dropdown box – here you can toggle the information to be displayed. Changing accounts will immediately change the map screen and load the information relevant to this particular account; this is the account selector.

To the right of the Client Selector dropdown is the Farm Selector tool – You can change the map view to instantly snap to a different farm location by changing farms in the Farm Selector tool.

Lastly you'll see the Season, Field and Crop selection filters. Tyhe Crop selection filter is located on the bottom of the MyFarm map screen and is used to toggle the various crop filters on and off. You can use these filters to show specific data on your MyFarm map screen

On the very far right of the screen you'll notice two extra menus; the helpdesk, and your login controls.

Use the Help tools when you need to access frequently asked questions and helpful tutorials.

The last dropdown gives you access to your login controls. Use this panel to logout, and also to keep up to date with new controls and features using the What's New update window.


The AgDNA Toolbar

 Map View

The first button is your Map View, if you want to return to the map view at any time just click this button and you’ll instantly be taken back to main farm satellite imagery page

 Charts

The second button is the Chart View – this is a breakdown of the selected farm, including crop types, recent rainfall, weather forecasts, and even current commodity prices


 Activity Screen

The third button will overlay the recent activities undertaken on the selected farm – seeding, harvesting, tillage and more is displayed here in chronological order, as well as recent scouting reports and a chronological breakdown of every layer in every field


 Activity Calendar

Next to your Activity History button is your activity calendar - a visual representation of past and future activities in your activity list. The Calendar allows the user to plot their movements chronologically, and provides breakdowns of each task on a daily basis



 The Layers Button

Missing information on the map screen? Or maybe there’s too much? The Layers Button allows you to turn information that’s overlayed over the top of your maps on and off. In other words, you can make your map as complex or as simplified as you want. Information that can be viewed on your map view includes:

- Field Boundaries
- Field Labels
- Field Area
- Field Irrigation
- Crop Labels
- Variety Labels
- VRI Pivots
- Scouting Observations
- Info Panels
- Field Connect Devices

 Equipment

This toggles the equipment functionality that allows users to view up to the minute equipment metrics as well track in-field machinery in near real time. 

 Setup Button

This is the master switch for your entire operation. Here you can view at a glance all of the separate information for all of your clients

 Add Button

Want to add new clients? Vehicles? Fields? RCD data? Here is the place to do it. This is your toolkit for adding in NEW data into your system. Along with data and client information, you can add new machinery, implements, auxiliary devices and recording equipment and assign them to a particular client here

 Search Button

Your portal is equipped with a universal search function that allows you to find activities, scouting observations or any other kinds of farm data instantly


 Current Location Button

So alongside the horizontal functionality of the Navigation Toolbar are the vertical map control buttons; Zoom in and Zoom out is pretty self explanatory, however at the top of the Vert.Nav Bar is the 'Current Location' icon. No matter how you're zoomed in, or where you wander off to on your map screen, every time the user hits this icon, they are taken straight back to their current location


 Zoom to extents

Another map tool that zooms your current view to encompass your entire farm and all its field boundaries


 Zoom in/out functions

Zooms the map screen in and out


 Map/Satellite toggle switch

AgDNA uses by default an advanced satellite view to provide an overview of your client’s farm, however if you’re after something more simplified, this switch allows you to toggle between the advanced satellite view, and a simple map view for easier viewing
