Versions 1.4

Version Release date Release type
1.4.0 March 20, 2019 New, bug fix

 

Version 1.4.0

What is new

  • (1.4.0) Dashboard: new look and feel, this includes a sidebar to access: Help, Settings, Project Options.
  • (1.4.0) Dashboard: you can group your project by: company, farm, client; in addition assign crop types and varieties.
  • (1.4.0) Dashboard: a project can be assigned a description which is visible on the dashboard project tile.
  • (1.4.0) Dashboard: a project tile will show the field size (based on the field boundary).
  • (1.4.0) PDF reports can now be created from a project which includes layers of the map.

Improvements

  • Algorithmic correction for rig relatives.
  • Dataset feedback prior to processing, notification if the camera is not supported.
  • Support for new camera models, included improved support for DJI cameras.
  • Image attachments for annotations.
  • Improved editing of field boundaries: drag/remove points when editing.
  • Processing the images now uses less memory by using tiling.
  • Increased performance: shape and display of zonation maps.
  • Switch between imperial and metric units of measurement.
  • Project file storage has been regrouped, as part of this a logfile export is now possible in project.
  • Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) is the coordinate system used for the orthomosaics (instead of Transverse Mercator) for better interoperability with other software.

Bug fixes

  • Incorrect calculation of the zonation area.

Known issues
