The following are known issues for IFTDSS:
Data and runs from IFTDSS 2.0 will not be available in this version of IFTDSS. This is because IFTDSSis built on an entirely new system relative to previous versions.
When uploading shapefiles with multiple adjoining polygons, IFTDSS will automatically join the polygons into a single dataset; this process may create erroneous gaps or vertices where these polygons once touched. Visit the Shapefile Repair Topic for details on how to repair and edit shapefiles.
In some cases the location may be mapped incorrectly due to Internet Service Provider differences. Sometimes you may be mapped to the physical location of your ISP's servers, sometimes close to your actual location but off by a bit, sometimes nowhere near where you actually are! In short, when GPS is not present and the browser has to rely on your internet connection to determine your location, you are more likely to see the wrong location on the map. This is a known issue that the IFTDSS team is working on, we appreciate your patience while we work through this bug! We are working on eliminating many known bugs, but in the end we are not likely to be able to guarantee that it will work every time on every device and browser.
On some small screens and tablets Map Studio may appear slightly different compared to normal sized monitors, with the buttons along the bottom spanning the entire page, and the buttons in the top left and right in different locations. As a temporary work-around while we address this issue, you may reduce the size of the page via the zoom option in Chrome. From the top ribbon, click the Customize icon in the top right of your browser, and reduce the zoom until Map Studio displays correctly, typically o 90% or 80%.
When navigating back and forth within IFTDSS, use the application's navigation bar, buttons, and breadcrumbs do so. Avoid using your browsers 'back' and 'forward' buttons.
For security purposes, access to Operational Layers is limited to federal government employees. In the future, we will be working to streamline access to non-federal partners.
Currently we have received feedback that the MTBS Burn Severity Reference layer is not displaying, and work is underway resolve the issue (as of 6/7/17).
To permanently save an uploaded shape file so it can be saved for later use in IFTDSS, it must be saved using the Edit Tools button. Detailed instructions for this process are located in the Saving Shapefiles for Future Use Topic. Shape files created within IFTDSS
Currently, the timezone used when IFTDSS timestamps an output is eastern time.
If your using IFTDSS landscape extents to download additional data from the LANDFIRE Data Distribution site, you'll have to re-clip the landfire files to match the IFTDSS if you need them to match exactly to the same extent. See the Spatial Extent of IFTDSS and LANDFIRE Data Topic for more information.
When using the Filter to hide all but one mask on your landscape, it is possible that zooming into the extent of that mask will cause Map Studio to zoom into a random region, requiring the user to scroll back to their area of interest. This issue is in the process of being addressed.
The error message you encountered appears within Developing Treatment Alternatives Run Model tab, when you attempt to assign a run name that is already used elsewhere within your IFTDSS account. To alleviate this error, use a new name for your run.
