Data types

There are two key types of data layers that live in a project:

  1. Rasters (your drone mapping data); and

  2. Vectors (points, lines, polygons, text).

Adding drone mapping data

To add drone mapping data to a project, you can

  1. Upload new data; and

  2. Add existing data.

To upload and process a new dataset, all you need to do is drag and drop it onto GeoNadir. Read more about the uploading process here.

You can search and add existing data from that you've previously uploaded, or from the FAIR Geo global map that other users have contributed.

  1. Click the Add drone mapping data button from the top menu bar in a project.

  2. Select to Search existing data (you can also use the keyboard shortcut shift+E instead of these first two steps).

  3. Use the search and filter options (see section below), as well as zooming in and out of the map to refine the datasets available. Note that the listing will not include datasets that are already in your project.

  4. Select the dataset/s (you can select up to ten datasets at once).

    1. Holding the shift key while making a selection will allow you to select a range of adjacent datasets. E.g. clicking the first dataset in the list, then holding shift and clicking the fifth dataset will select datasets 1-5 inclusive.

    2. When there are ten datasets or less in the listing, you will be able to 'select all'. This option is not available for more than ten datasets.

  5. Click Add to project

The dataset/s will appear in your table of contents listing and the orthomosaic will be visible on your map. If you don't see it, make sure you are zoomed to the correct location.

If you want to add more than ten datasets, simply open the search again.

Filtering datasets

When you open the add datasets option, it will contain datasets relevant to the current zoom level of your project. There are several ways that you can refine your search:

  1. Zoom in and out on the map using the scroll on your mouse, the + and - keys on your keyboard, or the + and - buttons on the side of the map.

  2. Pan around the map by dragging with your mouse to get to your location of interest.

  3. Change the input sources. By default this will be set to search all of your datasets in addition to the FAIR Geo global map.

  4. Change the categories. All datasets are uploaded to GeoNadir will be labeled according to a habitat category derived from the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Learn more about that here. Projects are automatically labelled with the categories associated with any datasets contained within them.

  5. Change the date range. Use the calendar to restrict your search to a specified time period when the data were acquired.

  6. Use the search bar. The search function allows you to refine your datasets based on text information contained within the dataset title, categories, descriptions, or tags.

Sorting datasets

Once you have refined your search, you can sort the listing by:

  1. Alphabetical

  2. Date captured

  3. Date uploaded

Creating new vectors

You can draw vectors in a project by using the associated tool on the upper toolbar of your project.

To import vectors from another mapping application, check out this help article.
