Step-by-step enrollment:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Create an account

  2. Upload boundary files or data spec

  3. Run Smart Defaults - Historic Rotation

  4. Run Smart Defaults - Future Rotations

  5. Correct verifiable years with farm records

-------------------------------------------------------------------

2a. Uploading boundary files 

After you have created a project, you will upload your field boundaries, one by one, in the .geojson format. Note: You can skip uploading the geojson and instead just name the field and start adding records, circling back to this step when ready. However, if you are uploading data through one of the Nori approved platforms (i.e. , Granular), skip to step 2.B. 

  1. Download files from farm software platforms or draw in geojson.io. If files are in a different format from geojson, read FAQs below for guidance. 

  2. Select “Add Field Set”

  3. Name Field

  4. Click “Upload .geojson”

  5. Upload the boundary file in geojson format (the file type will end in either .json or .geojson)


  1. Once all of your field boundaries are uploaded, you are ready to begin your current data entry for your project.

Boundary File FAQs

Do I have to upload field boundaries one by one or is there a way to upload boundaries in bulk?

At this time, the only way to upload field boundaries in bulk is using a farm software upload. Otherwise, each field must be uploaded individually. 

What if fields are not in geojson?

If your files are stored in a different format such as a .kml or in shape files, they may be converted into .geojson using online resources such as http://ogre.adc4gis.com/ . If your files are stored as shape files, they will need to be compressed prior to uploading them to the website.

    Steps using http://ogre.adc4gis.com/

  1. Upload file using “choose file”

  2. Once uploaded, select “convert to geojson”

  3. This will lead you to a text tab containing the file in geojson


  1. Right click anywhere on the page and select “Save as…”

  2. Name the file as the field name and end the file  with .geojson to save it in the correct format

  3. You may see a pop-up message, similar to the one below. Select “Use .geojson” so boundary is saved in proper format

  4. You now have a file compatible to upload in the Nori Project



What if I don’t have field boundaries?

If you do not have your field boundaries, you can make them at the geojson.io website. A video walkthrough of the process is linked here

When drawing boundaries

  • If your field is made up of multiple areas, or polygons, only save 1-3 polygons per file

  • Draw around any objects within your field, as to not have holes within a given polygon


  • Do not have overlapping lines for your field boundaries


Whoops! I made a mistake on my boundary… can I fix it?

Sure thing. On the field icon, select the vertical ellipses and select “Edit Geojson”. From here, you can either edit the existing boundaries or change the field to a different boundary file. If the field boundaries has over 100 points, we’ll run into an error when running it through Soil Metrics so will need you to select “Simplify Boundaries”.
