2.0 Creating Tables

Modified on Thu, 19 Jan 2023 at 03:01 PM

The Add Table block allows you to produce tabulated numeric values. These are displayed in the DASHBOARD tab. 

How to use the Add Table block


The Add Table block is in the Toolbox under OUTPUT->DASHBOARD.

This block allows you to generate your own tabular output of numeric values derived from the dataset.

To use the Add Table block, follow these steps:

Step 1: Snap the Add Table block into place

  • The Add Table block should be placed after the Collate Images in Time block. 
  • Here is an example workflow with a table block in place:

Step 2: Select your variables

  • Click on the settings icon (the cog) to open the Table Creator box. 
  • The following window will appear:

  • Click on ADD ROW +  to start selecting what parameters will be included in the table.
  • A row will appear with drop-down menus for each column.
  • Datasets:
    • Select from the available datasets, available areas or available area collections. 
    • To include datasets not made within this workflow, use the Re-use This Saved Dataset block to make it available in this drop-down list for this workflow.
  • Dates:
    • You have the choice of using All Dates or just selected dates (that have been collated within the workflow).
    • If you toggle All Dates on and off, you can deselect everything (but you must select at least one date).
    • At the bottom of the list you may see the option to Transform the data, aggregating all the dates into one collection (with a further option to select the averaging method).
  • Properties:
    • These are the values that will go into the table.  It is a dynamic list, so will change depending on what you have chosen as a dataset. 
    • All the available bands and indices will be shown in the list for a given dataset selected. 
    • If you toggle All Properties on and off, you can deselect everything (but you must select at least one property).
  • Role:
    • Choose what is to be done with the property values.
    • Add to Rows means to include it as rows, rather than columns. 
  • The dustbin icon will delete the row.

Step 3: Check your preview, SAVE and RUN WORKFLOW

  • Within the Table Creator a preview is shown at the bottom so that you can see what the table will look like.  Note that the values are dummy values -- they are just there to illustrate the table layout.
  • Click SAVE. 
  • When you run your workflow the table will be created and displayed in the DASHBOARD tab.
  • Click on the download icon to download the table data as a CSV file to reuse elsewhere. 

An Example Table

  • Here is an example workflow with a table that shows the time series of NDVI for three areas of interest.
  • Build a workflow with Sentinel 2 and include a calculation of NDVI using the Index block. 
  • Create a number of Areas of Interest on the map. 
  • Include an Add Table block as shown below. 
  • Choose the following parameters in the Table Creator

  • The table output will show each area on a separate row, with the time series of NDVI in consecutive columns.
