One of the bedrock principles of CropTrak is how assets and layers are handled in the app. The ability to turn layers on and off allows users to quickly see how various assets are behaving. However once we get to know the app, most folks tend to use the same methods to turn layers on and off. But there are four methods for layer display control within the app including some which may make your app experience even better:
- At the Ranch/Field Level – the most basic method for layer display control. This is accessed by navigating to the field level of the app, and using either the “Geometry Visible” button, or scrolling down to the list of layers associated with the farm to turn on/off a single layer.
- At the Farm Level – backing out of the Ranch/Field level to the Farm level, we can see the Asset List (Ranches/Fields) associated with the farm. If we tap on the “hamburger” icon (the three horizontal lines to the right of the Farm name), we will open up a menu with layer controls. The Layers Visible toggle functions the same way the Geometry Visible toggle works when we directly selected the farm name.
- At the Grower Level – Backing out to the Grower level displays the Asset List (Farms) associated with the Grower. If we tap on the “hamburger” icon for the selected grower, we open the layer controls menu for the grower (the menu looks identical to that seen on the farm level). Turning the Layers Visible toggle to ON will display ALL the assets associated with ALL the farms belonging to the Grower.
- Via the Asset Selection Filter – The last main way that you can turn layers on/off is via the Asset Selection Filter which is accessed via the “Funnel” icon at the middle of the very top most menu in CropTrak.
CropTrak has created a detailed set of “how-to’s” on our support portal which explains everything related controlling the display of layers within the app. You can access the support article on that here.
