I am starting now to get familiarized with FarmOs. I am mapping my farm now importing some KML files I created in Qgis from a DWG file, and I got a little confused:
1 - I see that the area is only displayed in the metrics if I I import my polygon as an field area type. This does not happened with plantation, for example. Ok, this is documented in the docs. But if I do want to have my plantation area displayed, should I import it twice, first as plantation, then as field?
2 - I noticed some kml files (with Linestring objects) are imported as a closed line, but in this case no area is calculated, only the perimeter. If I convert it to Solid Polygon in Qgis, than I get the opposite, the area is displayed in the map, but not the perimiter lenght. I ended up adding 2 field objects so I see both perimeter and area displayed.
So I ended with 4 objects imported. Two fields (one for area, other for perimeter) and two plantations (cause I was not sure which one I wanted, perimeter or area), what is for obvious reasons wrong…
What should I do?
