{{#customtitle:Adding geospatial data|Adding geospatial data}} The newly created project is empty. There are two ways of adding data to the system.

We propose you the easiest way: download the maps from the GeoAgro Services server.
Our team has prepared a series of layers to be used in the tutorials, and you'll download them through the GIS Download Module.

Download data using the Services Tab

Activate the Download and then the My Services tab.

Please select the layers Fields (NRCS), Soils, Well and Orthophoto; in order to add them to the active project (the one that you've just created) just press the Image:GIS_con_Bar_13-01.png Download button.

After that, a message will arise showing the progress of the operation (it shouldn't take more than a few seconds))

Note Note: In order to select more than one layer, please press and hold the Crtl key as you select them with the cursor

To go back to the GIS Module just press on the appropiate tab. The downloaded layers will be listed on the Reference Panel.

Download data using a backup copy

If your internet connection is not stable you can opt for the restoration of a project's backup copy.
Please follow this link to download the file. Save that file on your computer and remember the location of it.

At the GIS Module, select the Image:GIS_gis_Edit_09_01.jpg Backup Tool and click on Restore Backup
