Using a template project

Modified on Mon, 19 Jun 2023 at 06:02 PM

Template projects contain workflows built by experts in the Earth Blox team following best practices. They can be used to learn about Earth observation techniques and save you time building workflows from scratch.

Templates are intended as a starting point. Some workflows are designed for specific geographical areas or contexts, and could produce inaccurate results when used in another region or context. Read the template descriptions on the Knowledge Hub to understand whether a template is suitable for your project, and how you might customise it to suit your needs. 

Open a template project

On the Projects page, click on See all template projects in the Getting Started section, or click on Create new project > From template.

Select the template project that you would like to use.

Change the Area of Interest

Template projects have an Area of Interest predefined. You can change this Area of Interest to run the workflow for your project area.

In the map pane, click on the X to clear the areas, collections and any map layer outputs from the map.

Click on Add area in the map panel to draw an area, upload an area, or choose from assets.

Customise the workflow

Template projects are designed to be used without having to make any changes to run successfully. However, you might need to customise it to suit your needs.

To add extra filters, analysis, or outputs, drag and drop blocks from the toolbox into the workflow.

If you want to customise the parameters in the blocks, click on the blocks to make changes.

Get your results

Click the Run workflow button at the bottom of the workspace.

Map layer outputs will appear on the map, and can be controlled in the Layers section of the map panel.

To see table outputs, click on the Dashboard tab in the right-hand panel.

Saving the project

To save the project, click Save in the app header. This will save a copy of the template project to your personal files with any changes that you've made to the workflows or areas.
