  2. Click on the "Historical weather" tab to get historical weather data (see the screenshot below). When you open the "Historical weather" tab, you can freely switch between polygons by using the right-hand menu with the polygons list. When you switch between polygons, the "Historical weather" tab will be opened by default.

    • Historical weather data will be displayed for the chosen polygon. By default, the chart is built for the last month.

  3. In order to select a different time period, please use the calendar on the chart. Please find the available depth of historical data for your subscription plan on the pricing page.

  1. Date of the measurements

  2. Maximal temperature

  3. Minimal temperature

  4. Precipitation, mm


Historical soil data

  1. Go to the "Weather data" section. Please read here how to get there.

    • Weather data section will be displayed for one of your polygons under the map and current data section.

  2. Click on the "History soil" tab to get historical soil data (see the screenshot below). When you open the history soil tab, you can freely switch between polygons by usung the right-hand menu with the list of polygons. When you switch between polygons, the history soil tab will be opened by default.

    • Historical soil data will be displayed for the chosen polygon. By default, the chart is built for the last month.

  3. In order to select a different time period, please use the calendar on the chart. You can find the available depth of historical data for your subscription plan on the pricing page.

Accumulated temperature and precipitation

  1. Go to the "Weather data" section. Please read here how to get there.

    • Weather data section will be displayed for one of your polygons under the map and current data section.

  2. Click on the "Accumulated" tab to see accumulated temperature and precipitation data (see the screen below). When you open the "Accumulated" tab, you can freely switch between polygons by using the right-hand menu with the polygons list. When you switch between polygons, the "Accumulated" tab will be open by default.

    • Accumulated temperature and precipitation data will be displayed for the chosen polygon. By default, the chart is built for the last month.

  3. To select a different time period, please use the calendar on the chart. Please find the available depth for accumulated parameters for your subscription plan on the pricing page.

  4. To set up the threshold for accumulated temperature, please use the Threshold field on the chart. The default threshold is 0.



Legend

The chart displays the following types of data:

  • Temperature, the sum by which the actual air temperature rises above or falls below a threshold level over a selected period. You can find on how to manage the temperature threshold in the paragraph 4 of this section.

  • Rainfall, the accumulated amount of precipitation for the selected period.

    For example, 3 mm of precipitation was observed on August 21 and 5 mm of precipitation was observed on August 22.

    The chart will reflect it in the following way:

    3 mm of precipitation on August 21, 3 mm + 5 mm = 8 mm of precipitation on August 22, etc.


The chart:

  • The Y-axis (left) is the numerical value of accumulated temperature.

  • The Y-axis (right) is the numerical value of accumulated rainfall.

  • The X-axis represents dates.
