Device events

Here you can browse and analyze all the data that your device has sent (photos, no. of pests and weather data - optional). At the top there are all the images taken with the latest one selected, so that you have its preview below. As you select any other image, the preview tab changes - it shows the image selected above.

_images/device_events.jpg

Special cases:
mosaic No stitching - the trap doesn’t have the stitch file yet, so it cannot show the stitched image (to see the original images taken, choose Show separated images under the Options)
no_image Image not sent - there is no image for selected day

At the lower part there are six tabs:


Image

Detailed view of the image selected above. On the right side you have some additional information (when the picture was taken, number of pests) and some other options available. You can directly edit number of pest by entering value into No. of pests field and click on button Save changes. If you want to edit more days quickly use Edit button which will open a new window. Use this function when the images are similar through week and you would like to set the same number of pests on all images.

Options

The following options are possible by clicking on cogwheel actions icon:

  • Show image (or double-click on the image) - full screen image preview - this functionality works only with unmarked image
  • Show separated images - non stitched preview; with double-click on the individual image you will get a full screen preview
  • Show stitched image - stitched preview
  • Show marked - preview with the pests marked
  • Show unmarked - clean preview (without markings)
  • Compare with previous - compare two consecutive images - this functionality works only with unmarked image
  • Close compare - close the compare preview
  • Mark pests mark_pests_gray - opens an editor where you can mark pests manually
  • Device monitoring info info_gray - current monitoring informations
  • Edit device - opens a window where you can edit main data of the trap
  • Show device location - a new window with the exact trap location (coordinates) opens
  • Schedule self cleaning schedule_scm - set the command for turning the sticky roll after the next image
  • Delete image - delete the selected image

For Mark pests and Schedule self cleaning also shortcuts are made for faster access.

Device monitoring info

Details about monitoring: pest, crop, protection measure, location

_images/device_monitoring_info.png

Location

When devices sends image or telemetry, we also receive its coordinates. Location change is automatically recognised when new coordinates are received. If there is already defined a location where device is, that location is offered. Otherwise user can define new location.

Area radius

Every location is defined with coordinates and radius. Radius is distance in users length measurement unit between coordinates and outer edge of location. User can define area radius when creating new location. In case of already defined location without area radius, user is asked to confirm or change area radius. When deciding about area radius user should consider size of his field or area that device is monitoring. Once area radius is set, it can not be changed.

Mark pests

Every picture taken is processed and analyzed by an automatic image recognition module which identifies, counts and marks pests with yellow rectangles. As the automatic image recognition can never be 100% (strange position, multiple pests together, ...) you have the possibility to correct and mark them yourself - they change color to green. Icone mark_pests always takes you to the SVG editor, where you can edit markings.

_images/svg_editor.jpg

Editor tools and actions:

  • Select svg_point: with a click onto the marking square you select it
  • Move: click into the square and drag it
  • Resize: select it and drag one side or corner
  • Delete svg_delete: select and click Delete Element icon (backspace/Delete)
  • Mark pest svg_mark: select Pest tool (or press R key) and select the area
  • Duplicate svg_duplicate: select and click Duplicate Element icon (or press D key)
  • Undo svg_undo (key Z)
  • Redo svg_redo (key Y)

Be sure to save changes before you close the editor.

If you are editing images for more days, you can move from one to the next or previous with back/forward buttons svg_back_forward. Be sure to save changes for each day separately.


Weather chart

The weather chart is optional - you can see it if selected trap has the temperature & relative humidity sensor.

Blue bars represents relative humidity, the orange line represents the temperature. You can choose the data range to be shown (from 7 days to 365 days) or you can choose the preview for the period between two dates. If you select a range in the lower chart, the upper one will zoom in the selected range.

_images/weather_chart.jpg

At the bottom you can view the weather table and make an export (Excel, CSV or chart) if needed.

_images/chart_export_w.jpg

Pest chart

Orange bars represents the number of pests detected automatically, green bars represents the number of pests reviewed by user and the red area represents the difference of the pests caught by day. There are also some events visible on the graph - they are marked with vertical dotted lines (like sticky roll tweak in pink, change of sticky plate in red, spraying in blue). You can choose various data ranges from a drop-down box. If you select a range in the lower chart, the upper one will zoom in the selected range.

_images/pest_chart1.jpg

With a click on the colored box or its label in the legend on the top right, you can select/deselect the data to be presented in the chart.

_images/pest_chart2.jpg

With a click on a bar, you get the exact time under Selected event and this is also a link to the corresponding event (photo) - image timeline will open in the week with chosen event and if you go to the Image tab, you will see a chosen image enlarged.

At the bottom you can view the pests table and make an export of data (Excel, CSV or chart).

_images/chart_export_p.jpg

Pest by temperature chart

This functionality is shown only when Cydia pomonella is monitored and if selected trap has the temperature & relative humidity sensor.

Orange bars represents the temperature at selected time (Temperature at hour), which is important for insect development; usually this is the time at which insect become active. The green line represents the number of pests caught. There are also two red boundaries, which are again adjustable for the temperature at which males become active and at which matting begins. You can choose various data ranges from a drop-down box or you can choose the preview for the period between two dates. If you select a range in the lower chart, the upper one will zoom in the selected range.

Degree days

This chart is shown only if selected trap has the temperature & relative humidity sensor.

The minimum temperature at which insects first start to develop is called the lower developmental threshold (LDT). The maximum temperature at which insects stop developing is called the upper developmental threshold (UDT). The lower and upper thresholds vary among species and has to be set for each species separately.

Degree days (DD) are based on the rate of an insect’s development at temperatures between upper and lower limits for development. Degree days are calculated according to Modified average method.

_images/DD_formula.jpg

To account for situations when the daily minimum temperature is less than the LDT, or the daily maximum temperature is greater than the UDT, the formula needs to be modified. When either occurs, the LDT is used instead of the daily minimum, or the UDT is used instead of the daily maximum.

The user has to set Start monitoring date, LDT and UDT and degree days start to accumulate. When the start of second generation occurs (you have to enter the date), then degree days are reset to 0 and start to accumulate for the second generation and the same for all the next generations.

There is also an option to enter Degree days start value when device was installed in the field later than first DD should start to accumulate for this pest (DD model usually starts with the biofix - first moth activity in the season) and of course you need to pull the accumulated degree days from some other source.

The chart is not limited to the selected monitored pest, but you can add also other pests for generation phenology display when choosing Select additional monitored pest.

At the bottom you can view the degree days table and make an export of data (Excel, CSV or chart).

Events

Some general events can be entered under Events tab - Change of sticky plate, Change of lure (pheromone), Spraying, Observation on spot, End of monitoring year, Replace of sticky roll.

_images/device_events_list.jpg

Some of those events are triggers for the alerts.


Alerts

Alerts can be set in main menu Devices and MMP - here you will enter the time at which you want to receive alerting e-mails, e-mail address and set how many days before certain event you want to receive the alert. You will receive alerts for all devices from your account.
