Upload a file

Within your site you can keep track of all of the documents that are associated with your project. You can replace your paper files by uploading them onto your virtual map. The documents you need can be recorded and saved in your Unearth site. Whether you want to simply upload your files, show the location of them or attach one to an asset, you can. Here’s how:


1. Click on the plus button on the left side of the screen.

4. Once you have uploaded your file, our system will automatically locate it on your site if the file has location data (drone surveys and photos taken from smartphones have this data). If the file doesn't have location data, you have the option to place it on the map (as shown in the image below).

Click on the "Add to Map" button to place the file icon on your map.

5. You can move the icon anywhere on your map by simply clicking and dragging it. Then click "Done" when you are finished.

6. If you’ve uploaded a drone survey, you’ll be asked to process the survey in DroneDeploy after the images finish uploading. Select that you do want to process the images. After you do that, the drone survey should take under 24 hours to process and show up on your map.
