You can look at small areas of a field, and you can calculate the average yield for any area. It's not currently possible to filter the data to show only individual passes, but you may do so for individual loads. You may also select two points and force any points that fall between them to lie in a straight line. This can be useful for fixing short-term losses of differential correction while harvesting. In addition, the location and other data may be changed for single points or entire groups of points at the same time.

For field boundaries, depending on what kind of precision you need and what you have available, you might try one of these methods:

o Use scanned FSA maps, registering them to benchmark points captured with a GPS receiver or from a USGS roads or waterways map, and then trace field boundaries from those.
o If you already have yield maps, a Farm Site feature called "autodraw" can trace the boundaries of those maps to create fairly accurate field boundaries.
o If your yield monitor will allow you to log your position without having the sensors attached, you can create a "yield map" in your yield monitor as you drive around the boundary of the field, then import it into Farm Site as "lines only."

The USGS roads and waterways map files are available on the Internet (see our links page at [www.farmworks.com]) or may be ordered from Farm Works.
