while creating a survey for OF CE, I followed the instructions of the CE Manual and created a grid file (CSV). Now, I would like to have the additional data (elevation, slope, aspects, and other) in my data base. At based, when the balloon pops-up in Google Earth, the variables "elevation", "slope", etc. should be already extracted from my grid (csv) file.

How can I achieve this? Is it possible to configure the survey already in OF Collect, so the data fields are filled with the extracted values beforehand?

Thank you very much!

please see answer of this post in order to create the grid using a newer method (though Google Earth Engine) which adds all that data automatically: GEE Script to generate a grid

Otherwise, also though Google Earth Engine you can add elevation,slope and aspect data to the plots (if you already have a CSV) through this link: (Remember that you need to upload first the CSV as a Fusion Table, then you get the ID of the fusion table and substitute it in line 17) : Add DEM info to plots already generated

Let me know if that works for you!
