Design Tiling Plans
Utilize the software's ability to import multiple different file types and design your tiling plans based on any reference layer to strategically place tile runs. Utilize soil surveys, yield maps, elevation maps or even high resolution LIDAR data. View these maps in 3D to gain a better perspective on the field's topography. Make use of the powerful Terrain Analysis tool for a greater outlook of the field's terrain
Create Tiling Plans
Place tile mains, sub mains or laterals based on your tiling parameters to create accurate tile plans. Added tile lines will display a soil profile view, making it easy to see changes in elevation and these changes affect your tile runs. Utilize tools incorporated into the software to make sure your tile plans will drain the right amount of water in the right amount of time.
When creating new tile plans, any reference layer can be displayed to help strategically place tile lines, such as Soil Survey, Yield, Elevation, Flow Arrows, Existing Tile or LIDAR data. Display the field in 3D terrain view to gain perspective on the field. Use the Terrain Analysis tools in SMS Advanced to show water flow related attributes such as Wetness Potential and Drainage area. Easily visualize these attributes with directional flow arrows that can overlay these maps.
Track Installed Tile
Import and store installed tile lines to help you locate and easily add on to a drainage system. If the tile was installed using the Ag Leader display or Gradient Intellislope display, SMS will display a soil profile view detailing how the tile was installed.
This can be used to ensure that all your tile lines indeed have a positive flow. Data collected from the Ag Leader display will also show GPS statistics when you were running in the field. For installations with the Ag leader display using AutoTile®, you can see the depth of the tile as well.
Print Tiling Plans
Designing Tile Plans in SMS allows you to create multiple approaches to a tile system, so you can compare the amount of tile used as well as the most effective placement to ensure your time and effort are not wasted. Tile plans can be easily printed for quotes to land owners or used to provide documentation for future reference.
