Contract period: 01.03.2011
Budget: 61,726 Euro
Purpose of research: Applied research
The overall aim of the GeoWebAgri-project is to investigate and develop an ICT infrastructure for handling geospatial data and knowledge, both, in agricultural machines and farm management information systems (FMIS) and to promote the introduction of this technology in European software and automation systems for agriculture. The technology is studied particularly in the context of spatial data infrastructures (SDI) for the planning and operation of precision agriculture in arable farming. In the project the neccessary technologies for such an infrastructure will be assessed and implemented. In case studies the applicability of the developed infrastructure is evaluated. The results are disseminated to the public and operators through recommendations, training workshops, demonstrations and publications.
