Now that you have your account set up, fields mapped, and your equipment set up, let’s start capturing data and put it to work for your operation. FieldView™ enables you to collect planting, harvest and spraying application data. Once your data is collected, you can then analyze it to see what’s working on your operation — and what isn’t.
With your FieldView™ Drive or Precision Planting 20/20 SeedSense®, seamlessly collecting planting data is simple.
Follow this checklist to get started collecting planting data:

With the FieldView Cab app, you can watch your maps build in real time as you pass through the field. With this visualization, you can track seed population rate while planting and yield while harvesting and spot potential issues like excessive downforce while planting, a clogged nozzle while spraying, or high moisture during harvest, in order to protect yield and get the most out of every crop. If you followed the steps for harvest, planting and spraying, you will be able to view your progress for each of these passes in the FieldView Cab app.
Example of Harvest Collection
You also have the ability to visualize multiple data layers in the FieldView Cab app in real time as you make passes through your field. Open the FieldView Cab app on your iPad®:
RemoteView in the FieldView Cab app offers the ability to see activity as it’s happening in the cab - even if you’re not in it - from anywhere. This provides an easy and powerful way for everyone within an operation to be aware of exactly what is happening. Here’s how you do it:
During the RemoteView session, the real-time data from the connected equipment will begin being mapped and reported in the Metrics Pane (green boxes on the left of the screen), as seen below. Changing the current map type being viewed, editing the legend, or opening a report will not impact what the operator is seeing on their iPad.
The name of the equipment being viewed using RemoteView will be displayed in the middle of the Map under the Map Selector, as will a Disconnect button that will end the current RemoteView session.
If you have data in your FieldView account, we’re going to show you how to put it to work so you can get the most out of every acre. If you were unable to stream data via the FieldView Drive or your Precision Planting monitor, don’t worry, FieldView still offers ways to add your field data into your account. Please reference this information on uploading historical data.
Harvest is where all your hard work you put in throughout the year really pays off. The yield analysis tool allows you to see that harvest data you collected so you can analyze your yield by field, soil, or seed type so you can make the best agronomic decisions next season.
For more information on yield analysis, click here or watch this short video.
See how your agronomic decisions impacted yield by comparing critical data layers such as soil maps, application rate, and seed population to yield with side-by-side maps. In the FieldView app, follow these steps:
You can also do a side-by-side comparison in the the FieldView Cab app by following these steps:
Find out what’s happening beyond the end rows with consistent, high-quality imagery. Scouting maps help you identify issues early, prioritize scouting and take action to protect yield. Vegetation maps help you monitor biomass over time and feature advanced color mapping to provide a higher level of image detail. True color images provide a real-world view of your fields, so you can compare this view to vegetation and scouting maps. Here’s how you find your field health images:
Scouting maps provide an accurate representation of field conditions, and enable you to focus on key areas within a field.
Vegetation maps allow for easy tracking of field progress and health through the season. The map is colored using the Climate Crop Index, which calculates current vegetative biomass.
True color images provide you the ability to see a real-world view of your field, which is helpful to compare to your Scouting and Vegetation images, as well as to find impediments such as clouds or shadows.
When using field health imagery, dropping and saving pins is critical. It enables you to locate a specific spot that needs attention and save that location, making it easy to continue to scout that area all season long.
Here’s how to use pins:
With FieldView you can save certain regions of your field where you want the ability to track - such as test plots or spots on your scouting map where you’ve identified issues. You can monitor those regions throughout the season, measuring the impact your decisions had on yield, and integrate those insights from year to year.
In the FieldView Cab app, you can view Summary Reports for Planting, Harvest and Application. For this example, let’s walk through a Harvest Summary Report.
Follow the first four steps above, and on step five, choose Season Summary Report or click here for a step-by-step process.
We’ve been talking a lot about maps in this section and how you can view them electronically, but what if you want a hard copy to print out or share with your agronomic partners? We have that too. Here’s how you do it.
Now that you’re ready to go with Climate FieldView, you may want to automatically share your fields and data with your partners, such as your dealer or agronomist. Sharing is easy and can be done by following these simple steps. You can also share field data through the FieldView Cab app by following these steps. Sharing can be turned off at any time.
If you have more questions or want to dig a little deeper on what you can do with FieldView, you can search our Knowledge Center by topic by visiting climate.com and clicking on “Support” at the top of the home page. There you will find hundreds of helpful videos and how-to guides.
