1.Send your farm information to SnapMaps. Before you can use the SnapMaps site you must press the Upload button. This will allow your farm to properly work with SnapMaps. When you first open the SnapMaps tab the Upload button will be green, indicating that you have not connected the farm yet. After you press the button it will become blue, and then white. When the button is blue it is in the process of sending the information to the website. Wait until the button becomes white before preceding to the next step. Note: If you have already sent your information to the website, pressing this again will wipe out any changes you have made on the website since you last downloaded the data.
2.After the farm is connected with SnapMaps, press the Website button. This will open the current farm in SnapMaps in your default browser. Note: Close all other instances of SnapMaps before pressing this button. It can be easy to edit the wrong map and create inconsistent data.
3.Create or import your fields on the website. See Using the SnapMaps Site for more information.
4.After you have finished creating your fields, press the Download button. This will get the size, county, soil, slope percentage, slope length, and restrictions for each field from the server. As soon as you've made changes on the website, this button will become green, indicating that something has changed since you last downloaded the data. When the button is pressed it will become blue and then white. When the button is blue it is in the process of downloading the field data. Wait until it turns white before proceeding. Note: Downloading the data can take a significant amount of time, especially if you have a lot of fields.
5.Import the data into SnapPlus. See Importing Data into SnapPlus for more information. Note: There are two places to import data from, the SnapMaps Fields tab and the SnapMaps Restrictions tab.
6.After downloading you map data you may choose to remove your farm data from the SnapMap website. You can accomplish this by clicking on the Clear Map Web Data button.
