Whatever the platform, FieldAgent™ unlocks the data.
Meaningful, Actionable Crop Health Data
FieldAgent™ is a complete agrcultural data anayltics solution that’s with you at the office, and in the field. FieldAgent handles all your aerial color, NIR and NDVI data, while AgVault Mobile™ tracks crop growth stages, weeds, compaction, storm damage and more. FieldAgent photography is stored and managed alongside your aerial drone data making it a comprehensive image data solution. FieldAgent works with any of the best ag drones available today, including our Sentera DJI Packages, so you’re never locked into a specific piece of hardware. Coupled with a Sentera precision ag sensor, FieldAgent takes you beyond aerial photography into meaningful data products with actual economic value, such as NDVI and NDRE zone analysis, population analysis, weed mapping, and elevation mapping.
Please note: FieldAgent software only supports NIR images taken with Sentera sensors.

App for Android + iOS
Highlight Flight Area
FieldAgent Mobile is the premier ground-based crop scouting and UAV autonomous-flight tool. Take a picture with AgVault Mobile and it instantly appears on your desktop, sorted by location, time and type.
Use AgVault Mobile to keep track of crop growth stages, storm damage, pest infestation, weed types, farm equipment and more. Photos from the app are stored alongside your aerial data and can be shared and exported just the same. AgVault Mobile lets you track everything happening on your land and easily compare it to previous years.
AgVault Mobile allows you to easily fly any DJI Phantom 4, Phantom 3, or Inspire 1 UAV, taking any guesswork out of flying the drone. The solution provides the agriculture industry with an affordable, end-to-end NDVI solution. AgVault Mobile allows farmers to highlight a field, autonomously fly ag drones, capture precise imagery, manage data, produce QuickTile™ maps, and deliver data to a piece of equipment, all at the field edge.
We’ve partnered with the biggest names in agriculture so your drone data gets where you need it. AgVault was created to supercharge your existing workflows, not create new ones.
We support all types of drones. We think our Sentera Phoenix is the best value to collect your farm imagery, but in case you already own another model, we support many different ag drones across the marketplace.
QuickTile — an alternative to full stitching
You just want the data — it doesn’t have to take hours and hours from super-computers to get it. AgVault offers QuickTiles that deliver complete field views by tiling your images together. They’re nearly as good, they’re instantly available at the field edge, no internet connection necessary, and they can direct you to the intended area in your field.
Still want full stitching? We can do that for you too, just send us a note
Connect the dots
AgVault puts a dot every place in your field where there’s an image — mobile or aerial. Photo dots make it quick and simple to see a high resolution RGB or NDVI photo of a specific spot in your field.
Field views tie everything together
Every field, every survey, every year. AgVault keeps all your drone and mobile surveys together, displayed layer by layer. Toggle layers on and off for instant comparisons between any number of data sets. AgVault makes it easy to understand what’s happening on your land, and then do something about it.

Frequenty Asked Questions
How do I import drone data collections?
We fully support aerial imagery from all of the most popular platforms such as the DJI Inspire, Phantom II, Phantom III, Indago and Sentera Phoenix. However, most any drone photo can be imported so long as the drone recorded the appropriate EXIF data including GPS position, altitude and time. If you’re unsure your platform meets these requirements, send a note to email@example.com and we’ll help you out.
To import drone photos after a flight, simply click the “import” button in the desktop client and follow the on-screen prompts. You will be asked to navigate to the folder containing the photos, so make sure they’re already on your computer or the ag drones memory card is inserted into your computer. If you’re flying a Sentera product, photos will transfer wirelessly from your drone to your computer, and eliminates the need to ever touch a memory card.
Complete the import process and you’ll find that your sites are now populated with your drone photography, sorted by date and time. Drone photos will appear with tags according to the sensor. For example, a Sentera double will import two sets of data, one for color RGB, and one for NDVI.
How does AgVault sync images across my entire team?
First, some definitions. We use the term “sync” to mean that high-resolution copies of your data are available locally on your client desktop. If things are synced, it means that data is available whether you’re connected to the internet or not.
For users with fewer than 50 fields under management, every image for every field is automatically synced to every user.
For users with over 50 fields under management, the first 50 fields with most recent activity will be automatically synced. The remaining fields are securely backed up in the cloud and synced “on-demand”, meaning they’ll only be freshly downloaded if you view the site’s data. We don’t automatically sync older sites to preserve bandwidth for both of us.
How are fields created in AgVault?
There are a few ways that fields are created in AgVault, either through capturing data or manual entry.
If you visit a new field and capture data with the app, a new field will be created automatically at that location (based on the GPS information from your mobile device). The app will recognize that no one from your team has visited the site, and will ask you to input a set of minimum information about the field. From then on, every time you visit that field again, new data collections will appear with different times and dates at that location. You may wish to login to the admin panel and verify the sites appear at the correct GPS location. (Tablet GPS data is never perfect.)
If you import drone imagery, or any other geo-tagged imagery using the Import function, fields will automatically be created at the places you flew. You can then edit the information associated with those sites as necessary in the admin panel.
Does AgVault work at the field edge? Without an internet connection?
Yes! AgVault and AgVault mobile work seamlessly without a data connection. You can import imagery, perform QuickTile image analysis, make annotations, create shapes and more right at the field edge. When you get back to the office, AgVault begins to backup your data in the background.
What does the free version of AgVault include?
The free version of AgVault comes packaged with each of our sensor products, and it’s our way of turning your pictures into rich NDVI data. This version allows you to locally store and organize your drone images, turn them into NDVI images and export them to common 3rd party tools such as Pix4D. To take full advantage of your NDVI data, we encourage you to upgrade to the full version of AgVault which offers collaboration features, shapes, quicktiling, mosaic support and direct export to all the best agriculture analytics tools such as Apex, SST, SMS, Farm Works Software® and more. If you have any questions about the free version of AgVault prior to purchase, please don’t hesitate to call or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note that the free version of AgVault is offered only to customers purchasing drones, sensors or complete systems.
How do I add users to my account?
Just log in to your admin panel, navigate to “Licenses” and click “Assign License”. If you add more users than you currently have spots for in your plan, you’ll need to purchase extra users, then assign the licenses in the AgVault administrator panel.
What happens if I add or subtract users from my plan?
If you would like to increase or decrease the number of users associated with your account, you must first change your subscription in our store. To do this, login to your account at sentera.com, select “My Account” and choose “Switch Subscription” in your “Subscriptions” block. You may then choose a new subscription and checkout as normal.
If you increase the number of users, you may login to the application administrator view and simply allocate those licenses as you see fit, up to your purchased maximum.
If you decrease the number of users, you will receive a reminder email asking you to suspend the users you no longer wish to associate with your plan. If we don’t hear from you, access will be turned off on a first-in / last-out basis. For example, if you move from 5 to 3 users, the 2 users you’d set up most recently would have their access turned off. You may log in to your administrator view at any time to re-allocate these users within your maximum number.
Is there a limit to the number of users I can associate with my plan?
Nope! We can handle accounts of all sizes, ranging from single users to large corporations.
What if I cancel my account?
Each month of service is prepaid. If you cancel, automatic renewals will be turned off and you will not incur charges for the next billing period.
For example, if your free trial ends on October 15th, your credit card will be charged for the period of October 15th – November 15th. If you cancel sometime in that space, your account will not auto-renew, but you will have access to AgVault until November 15th.
We provide a 30 day grace period. If you cancel your account, you will retain access for the next 30 day billing period. We do this to give you an opportunity to export and download your data. We’re not in the business of holding data hostage; we’re the best way to display, sort, search and organize it!
If you cancel, your data will be preserved for a minimum of 30 days after the account cancellation. Customers may, at our option, receive notification prior to any data being deleted. Customers re-joining within 30 days will have full access to prior data.
What happens when my subscription expires? Does it expire?
All Sentera AgVault subscriptions renew automatically each month, so you don’t need to worry about subscription expiry. If your automatic payment fails, their subscription will be placed into the “on hold” category and you will receive an email to notify you of the payment failure. You can login and correct the payment issue to become active again at any time.
Data will be preserved for at least 30 days after the last unsuccessful attempt to bill. Customers will receive an email after their first payments fail, a personal follow up email from our support team, and a may receive a final warning before their data is deleted. Data deleted is unrecoverable.
Can I use handheld digital cameras with AgVault?
We strongly recommend collecting all ground photos with the AgVault mobile app because of the ability to correctly tag, locate and synchronize photos. If you’d like to use a GPS-enabled digital camera and the manual import feature, please contact us at email@example.com to verify compatibility. Generally speaking, it will be supported, but please verify with us first so we can help you have a great experience. We test with the Nikon family of GPS-enabled cameras and find them to work quite well; however again, we strongly prefer the app for the rich context and location features it provides.
How are manually imported photos tagged?
They aren’t! Use the app for all photography on the ground to tag the image and keep it synced with your desktop client. Photos imported manually from a GPS-enabled digital camera are untagged, and will be appear as type “untagged” in the desktop client.
What are the AgVault system requirements? Desktop: AgVault runs on most any Windows PC, provided it’s running Windows 7, 8 or 10 and is 64-bit architecture. Mobile: Android OS version 4.4 or later, iOS version 7 and later.
What mobile platforms do you support?
Android and iOS. Both apps are available in the respective app stores.
Can I private-label Sentera AgVault for my business?
Yes. Please get in touch with us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss.
Is there any fine print?
Yes. We want to be honest and upfront about our policies surrounding use, your data and your privacy.
First, every user comes with 100GB of data storage attached to their account, and organizations share that data among the whole team. If you have an account with 7 users, you get 700GB of storage. If you need more, we can set you up, just call or email email@example.com. More storage isn’t free, but it’s cheap. We’ll get you squared away.
We cap monthly bandwidth at 100GB/user. Again, bandwidth is shared across accounts with multiple users. For most people, that is 10x the amount they’ll need every month, but there are people who will float higher from time to time. We do this so we can keep costs low for everyone, and again, more is available if you need it. Just get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your data is your data and won’t be sold or used in any way. We do use OnTop’s database in aggregate to understand how people are using the tools and make them better, market better, but we never use data that’s personally identifiable or specific to you.
We will not view or download your images. Possible exceptions to this might be cases where we’re trying to debug an issue, resolve a tech support ticket, or answer a question for you.
We do monitor usage levels and we may send you a note if we notice you haven’t logged in, loaded many images, or used the software much to see if there’s anything we can do to help you get the most out of AgVault. We do this to provide our customers with a great experience and offer high quality service.
