Using the TerrAvion labeling tool

This article describes how you can use the TerrAvion labeling feature in OverView that can help you manage fields. The labeling tool works together with the polygon tool and helps you find the areas that you are currently watching.

TerrAvion OverView users might be familiar with the Polygon tool, which allows users to select a part of a field, make notes, and download the SHP or GEOJSON file of the selected area to share, or to import into other platforms. The labeling tool is the second generation of the polygon labeling tool and offers many new features to help growers/distributors/agronomists manage their fields.

To use the tool, select an area by drawing with the polygon tool. For instructions on how to use the polygon tool, click here. After placing one point, you can now move it by clicking and dragging. image13

After you make a fully closed polygon, the new labeling tool window will appear. In the top left corner of the window, you will see the information for the selected field, as well as the creator of the label and current label status. The label default status is watching. There is a 'Keep' button to keep watching the label, which will keep it in the labeling queue for the following flight cycles, as well as an 'Archive' button, which will archive the issue as resolved. There is also a trash can button to delete the label.


Click the X in the right-hand corner of the label window, and you will return to the Label List window. At the top of the Label List window, there are three label categories. Labels that you create will be under the 'Watching' category until you mark them resolved or delete them. When you mark it as resolved, it moves to the 'Resolved' category. The 'New label' category has labels created by other users and shared with you. 

Above the label categories, there is the 'Label Shown' toggle, which turns the label outlines on maps on or off. 

On the Label List, each label will show the farm/field information, the label status, and the most recent comment.image12

If you click on a label, you will return to the labeling window for that label. If you have resolved a label issue or just wish to stop seeing it, click the Archive button. 

image8A new window will appear, and you can add notes and comments for the label if desired. Next, click 'Resolve.' You can also just skip the Yes or No section and simply click 'Resolve' to archive the label.

image7Close the label window to go back to the Label List window. Your archived label will now be located under the 'Resolved' category. image2

If you click on the 'Resolved' category and click on the label you archived, it will open still open a labeling window. Here, you can click 'Keep' to return the label status to Watching.



You can also make comments for your labels. You can make multiple comments for each label. Other users who see the field can also make comments, allowing for a dialogue between all users involved in the field management. All comments are logged in the comments section, with the date and name of the user who commented listed.


If another user comments on your label, or if they make a new label on your field, you will see a red notification on the labeling icon on the toolbar in OverView.


Tag List

You can tag your label with a specific issue under the Tag List section. Open the Tag List by clicking on the down arrow, and select all issues that apply to your label. This information will be shared with all users that see the field. image4

Sharing Dialog

You can share your labels in the Sharing Dialog. In the Sharing Dialog, enter the email of the person you would like to share the label with and click Share. In the bottom half of the Share Dialog window, you can see a list of users with whom the labels are shared. You can only share labels with people that the fields have been shared with. You can also remove people from the comments/labels here by clicking the 'remove' button next to someone's name.

If you want to share the fields with others, you will have to do that first. You can read how to share a field here.



Under the export tab, you can download/export a GEOJSON, SHP, or KML file by clicking on the button for the file you wish to download.image10
