Creating New Fields
To create a new field, first select the desired farm at the top of the screen. Then, navigate to the Fields area menu and select Create new field.

Select within the Click or drag file to this area to upload button.
Search for and select the desired shapefiles and then select the Open button.
Note: Shapefiles have individual .shp, .shx and .dbf files that need to be within the same zipped folder together.
The File Attributes menu provides the ability to set the field name for boundaries that are being imported. The desired choice will be an attribute that contains anything similar to Name or Field Name. After selecting the appropriate file attribute select Next to continue in the process.
The fields will now display within the map and are available for any necessary edits. Complete the upload process by selecting Save.
Draw Your Fields
When drawing a new field boundary, simply start clicking within the map to identify boundary points along the border of the field. Select the first boundary point, or double-click, to close the shape, name the field and then either select Save or Save and draw another.
Detect Your Fields
Select an existing Common Land Unit (CLU) boundary and edit the field name as needed. Repeat this process for any new additional fields and then select Create fields.
Any newly created fields will then be available within Cropwise Imagery and will force a new download of satellite imagery to be cached within Google Chrome's browser.
