ATLAS can build maps from raw images. But for now, we will consider that you already have a Geotiff map generated in other software (like Pix4D, Metashape or some other).
In this lesson, we will see how to upload existing files to ATLAS.
Follow the steps:
- Download map sample from https://files.ugcs.com/s/eCeST9yrH4ztoC3
- Create a new dataset next to a dataset created in Lesson 1. Open dataset, and on the left vertical bar click “Map”
- Click browse in ATLAS for file selection or drop file to the browser (only one file)
- File (without preview) will be added to the screen. Then press “Upload”. Do not close your browser or do not leave the page, because that will interrupt uploading
- Uploading process consists of 2 stages:
a. Uploading to the server (requires staying on the upload page)
b. Initial image processing for fast web presentation
- After the upload completes you will receive email notification
- Congratulations! If map uploaded successfully screen will look like on the picture below
In the left bottom corner of the screen dataset statistics can be found:
- area size (Ha)
- GSD - ground sampling distance in meters
- used space in Gb
- size in Megapixels (MP)
Size in Megapixels is literally a map width x map height in pixels.
