{{#customtitle:Delivering a plan |FMS4 - Delivering}}

In this learning guide, you will learn to deliver a plan to the Maine Forest Service and the NRCS Maine using GeoAgro GIS. You will first attach your plan document to your existing property boundary polygon, and then you will use GeoAgro Workgroup to submit the maps you created.

Where to Do the Exercises

The first step to complete the exercises in this tutorial is to set up the computer you will be working on. If you completed our Getting Started Course, your system and datasets are ready to go through this learning guide. You will be able to use our GeoAgro GIS trial version for 2 months. From now on, you are ready to begin with any learning guide you wish.

Exercise 01 – Renaming your practice and plan development layers

To avoid overwriting layers from other foresters when you upload them to the Workgroup server, you need to rename them. You will learn to do so in this exercise; first you will learn to rename the "Stand types" layer; then you will find a list of layers that need to be renamed.

Rename your stand types layer

First, click on the "Stand types" layer in the reference panel to select it.

Now click on the "Edit cartography and layer properties" tool in the right panel

Delivering

The "Layer properties" window will pop up. Now edit the "Name" box and add your initials preceding the layer name; the format will be "XX_OldLayerName". For instance, for the initials "SF1" it should be renamed as seen below.

Delivering

You'll see in the right panel that the layer has been renamed.

Other layers that need to be renamed

The complete list of layers that you should rename in a similar way is:

  1. Stand types
  2. Property Boundaries
  3. Practices Polygon
  4. Practices Line
  5. Practices Point.

Once you have finished renaming these layers, your reference panel should look like this:

Note Note: The example dataset provided by GeoAgro does not include neither the plan document seen below, nor the organization of files and folders. However, you may carry on with the exercise with any document of your choice.

Browse to your plan document and select it. Click on “Open”.

Delivering

The following warning window will appear. Click on “Accept”

Exercise 03 – Upload your maps to Workgroup

In this exercise you will learn to send your plan data to Maine Forest Service and NRCS Maine via GeoAgro Workgroup. First, you will log in the GeoAgro Workgroup database. Then, you will import your plan project from GIS into Workgroup and upload the required layers.

Note Note: To carry out this exercise you need a username, a password and special permissions to access to the Workgroup database that need to be provided by GeoAgro and authorized by NRCS Maine and MFS. If you think you should have access to the database, please contact us at [email protected]

Log in Workgroup

Click on the “Workgroup” tab.
Delivering

A login window will pop up. Complete the form with your user and password.


Delivering

Import your project from GIS into Workgroup database

Move over to the toolbar; drop down the “Import” menu and click on “Add”


Delivering

Select the plan project you want to import. In our exercise, we want to import the subproject named with your initials (in this example, it's called “SF1”) within “Maine Forestry”. Double click on “Maine Forestry”.

Delivering

Double click again on your subproject folder to see the layers available to import.


Delivering

Select the layers below and click on “Add” to import.

Delivering

Wait for the import process to complete. Your project folder in Workgroup should look as seen below.
