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.
