GIS transforming agriculture and plantations
Collaborative, online mapping is a game changer for agribusiness and plantations.
In the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Debbie in 2017, an online, collaborative portal gave the Australian tree-crop industry spatial information about the location and extent of commercial avocado, macadamia and mango orchards.
High-quality satellite imagery compared existing data with real-time imagery to rapidly assess damage and even identify individual trees that had been affected.

- Use location data to mitigate biosecurity threats
- Quantify damage from natural disasters
- Optimise coordination of disaster recovery efforts
- Clarify insurance claims
- Recalculate annual production forecasts
