Coordinate system

All GPS points sent must be in WGS84, so you need to set up your GPS reference system properly.

Examples on how to distribute your GPS points across your farm

These are some examples about how GPS points should be distributed based on the shape, size and distribution of the fields, and the way information should be presented (GPS coordinates and farm sketch)

Figure 1: Irrigation circle, GPS points are taken in the center, and some points on the boundary.

Figure 2: Irregularly shaped farm.

Figure 3: A farm with a large amount of fields.

Figure 4: Similar to Figure 3, but with a mount on one of its sides.
