Navigating to the deployment location

Once you have downloaded to the Deployment app your assigned Packets and cached the Site Map, use the Silvanet Deployment app to navigate your way to the Deployment site.

Tip

When locating a tree on which to install a sensor, look for indications that the chosen tree may be in poor health, is planned for cutting or is in anyway unlikely to survive for the duration of the lifetime of a sensor. Find another tree within the designated radius (20m) of the planned location.

To locate the Site:

  1. Open the Silvanet Deployment app on your Smartphone.

  2. In the list of Your Packets, click the Packet that has been assigned to you to deploy.

  3. The Packet shows the current task and list of devices. Expanding a device item shows the planned geographical coordinates for that device.

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the list of devices and click Map to open the Map view. The Map view contains the planned position of every component in the map. Your current location appears on the map as a blue icon.
