Enabling the gap-filling mode for historical data on your station to ensure seamless data continuity

Updated over a week ago

To avoid any data loss, make sure that your installation complies with the recommendations for good reading accuracy.

Ensure data continuity

Intermittently, your station might encounter data loss due to signal or battery issues, as exemplified by occasional gaps. Nevertheless, maintaining uninterrupted data continuity is important for informed decision-making concerning your crops.

When your station's switch is turned ON, we harness the collective power of the Sencrop station network to reconstruct your station's data history even in the case of missing data from your station.

To achieve this, we harness data from nearby stations in close proximity and use information gathered (within a radius of up to 10 kilometers) around your station's location to send you the most pertinent value.

The completed data will be displayed in dashed lines.

We harness air and wet temperatures and hygrometry.

⚠️ Given the significant variability in rainfall and wind gusts across different locations, we do not provide a gap-filling mode for these particular measurements.

Managing the gap-filling mode

By default, the data-filling gap is enabled across all stations.

If you want to only display the data recorded in your fields, by your station, you can deactivate the gap-filling mode.

To do so:

  1. Click on Stations from your Home screen

  2. Select History on the station of your choice

  3. Untick the box next to Data hole

Why is the gap-filling not working for rainfall?

Because rainfall patterns vary by location and modeling rainfall accurately is complex, we've chosen not to intentionally fill in missing rainfall data.

It means that when you activate the gap-filling mode in your station's historical data, the displayed information will solely reflect the measurements directly recorded by the station itself.

When the switch on your station is ON, the entire day is marked with diagonal lines to show that there's missing data for that day.

However, it's important to note that the displayed rainfall amount still aligns with the actual measurements taken by the station.

When you see the rainfall amount marked with diagonal lines, that's the minimum amount that's been recorded by the station itself. However, in reality, the actual rainfall could be higher than what's indicated by those lines.
