PDF reports are handy for a lot of use cases. They only contain the insights and data you want to share, can act as a backup and are easily shared with anyone who needs them.

💡 Looking for a digital way to share your data? Check out this article to learn more about share links and other export options.

Exporting a PDF report can be done using the Export Report button under the Export menu in 2D mode of an operation.

Export report button

This opens the PDF report modal, containing two types of report for you to choose from.

Standard report

The standard report is meant to share the details of an operation and its results. It's supported for all data products and includes the following sections:

  • A front page

  • A table of contents

  • Information regarding the site that has been inspected

  • Information regarding the inspection that has been performed

  • Overviews of any delivered map layers (visual orthomosaic, thermal orthomosaic, DSM)

  • Statistics regarding the inspection

  • Detailed information regarding annotations, anomalies or detected elements

The statistics and detail pages can be included or excluded by ticking the corresponding checkbox.

💡 If any filters are active while exporting the PDF report, they can be applied by ticking the Apply filters checkbox. Learn more about filters

The feature detail pages contain a cutout of any visual, thermal or DSM layer of the operation, as well as any information contained in that feature. The cog icons can be used to configure exactly which information has to be included in the report.

Here's an example of a standard report of a solar inspection operation:

Schematic report

⚠️ The schematic report is only available for Solar Inspection products.

The schematic report is a map-based report used to locate features on site. It can be printed in a variety of sizes, ranging from A0 to A4. Any visual orthomosaïc layer or optimised PDF overlay can be used as a base layer.

⚠️ DXF and non-optimised PDF overlays are not supported in the schematic report. Field Link supports all map layers and can be used instead. Learn more about Field Link.

The first page always contains an overview of the entire site. Since that overview is not accurate enough for larger sites, additional zoomed-in pages with a fixed resolution are added. The zoomed pages cover the entire site in a grid-like pattern. Pages without any anomalies are skipped, as they wouldn't add any value.

💡 If any filters are active while exporting the PDF report, they can be applied by ticking the Apply filters checkbox. Learn more about filters

Here's an example of a schematic report based on the visual orthomosaïc of the site.

The schematic report is perfect for fixing / checking problematic modules in the field. It works great in combination with the remedial action and status fields of the platform.
