The Botlink Web Portal is the place where your data comes to life.
Once you've finished flying you'll need to upload your imagery to be processed. Take the SD card with your images on it and plug it into your computer. Log in to the Web Portal using the same credentials as the Android app. Once you've logged in click on the upload icon and select your imagery using the file explorer.
Tip: Press Ctrl + A or Cmd + A to select all files in a folder
After you've selected which images to upload you will be presented with a modal that gives you a few final adjustment options before starting the transfer. From this screen you will be able to
- See the position of each image to be uploaded
- Adjust the cropping bounds
- Rename the flight
- Choose the type of processing you'd like
- View an expected number of images and total file size
- Estimate of final cropped area and perimeter length
As you can see in the video you can easily adjust the bounds of your final imagery by manipulating the vertices of the orange polygon.
Once you are satisfied with your parameters pressing Upload will begin the process of sending your imagery to Botlink. Your flight will then be added to our stitching queue and will be available for download once completed.
Viewing Processed Data
Once your flight has been processed you'll be able to view your results overlayed on the map. If your imagery supports different overlays, they will be displayed next to the count of total images.
To download the different results to your computer press the download button and select the data set you'd like. If you need additional data from your imagery or have questions, please contact Botlink Support by submitting a ticket or sending an email to Support@Botlink.com.
Analyzing your Data
Within the Web Portal we have included a few tools to help you get even more out of your aerial imagery.
- Allows you to hover over any measurement or annotation on the map to narrow the list on the left to what is selected. Click on a measurement or annotation to edit.
- Use this tool to take measurements of an area on your map. Select this tool, click to outline the area, and finish by clicking on the first point.
- Useful for measuring distances. Select this tool, click the beginning of your desired segment, and continue adding segments. Once finished select the end point twice to end the measurement.
- If you need to make a note about a location the Annotation tool is perfectly suited. Simply drop the pin on the map and click the edit button to write a description for that annotation.
For each measurement and annotation you create you can edit or delete them using the edit button and deletebutton.
