Improved usability for managing cells and configuring the view.

Managing Monitored Cells

One of the  main usability issues was hard to know that cells had to be monitored in order to generate reports.

The Landsat Cells panel lists all overlapping cells and highlights those that are monitored.

If no cell is monitored there is a warning in red that no reports will be generated for this area.

If date of the most recent observation for the cell is shown E.g. 04-25 (only displayed if available).

A Lock icon shows how to change a cell. While locked, clicking on a cell on the map has no effect.

Monitor Cells Locked

There is a hover popup.

Monitor Cells Editing with Popup

Clicking the padlock unlocks edit-mode.

Monitored cells are highlighted here as well as drawn bold on the map.
