Lesson 13: Tracking changes in the project

Approx. reading time: 5 mintes

Sometimes it is very important to see changes in time for a certain territory. E.g., see business of parking lot and car counts by date or changes in the landscape during days of earth works. To do such a change analysis in ATLAS follow the steps:

  1. Add working area for the area of interest
  1. Open context menu for the area of interest and select "Show change report"
  1. Report will open in a separate browser tab (Please note that you might need to allow popups in your browser). See the report example below:
  1. Report consists of one or many datasets from the project. Each dataset is in it's own cell. All cells are synchonized, meaning that you can pan, zoom map in one cell and other cells will do the same.
  2. Below each cell statistics is displayed with information for all annotated or detected objects within the working area.
  3. In the bottom part of each cell one can find dataset date (to the left) and layers configuration menu (to the right).
  4. Now let's see what we have in the report top bar (from left to right):
    7.1 Editable field for the report name and "Save to reports" button. You may give report a meaningful name and save it Project->Reports section. All report configuration, like visible datsets and zoom levels are saved as well. After report is saved , autosave mode for all the changes is enabled.
    7.2 Visible datasets can be fielterd by date range
    7.3 Report can be exported to nice looking PDF file
    7.4 Link to the report can be copied and shared with teammates. Please note that report is visible only to the project users. If project is public report can be accessed without authentication.
