Benefits of Geolocation and Big Data in the Agricultural Sector

Geolocation systems and Big Data turn data into information that farmers and land managers can use to make more informed and timely decisions to increase productivity.

Thursday, August 5, 2021

Sensors located in fields, tractors and on satellites high above farms are constantly collecting data.

Geolocation systems and Big Data are able to convert this data into information that agricultural companies can use to make more informed and timely decisions, increasing productivity, allowing to collect information on soil and plant needs to apply treatments that increase agricultural production, managing costly resources such as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

What benefits does the use of Big Data generate in the agricultural industry?

With the optimization of crop yields through predictive modeling by developing and implementing algorithmic models it is possible to predict, environmental conditions, such as humidity, air temperature, surface characteristics in areas of a large plantation where weed hotspots, erosions, floods, droughts and so on are more likely to be generated, mitigating the negative impact of destructive natural phenomena and identifying susceptible areas.

With satellite imagery and predictive analytics, these tools predict the consumption of resources and products used throughout the process, in turn optimizing production in plantations and reducing costs, such as water, fertilizers, seeds, etc., several of these things can be done by calculating the water stress of each crop, detecting visual patterns behind water shortages and managing the performance of irrigation systems or setting accurate and timely alarms to prevent the invasion of harmful insects and pests or infestations.

In the case of livestock these tools manage to monitor the health, fertility and nutrition of livestock, equally supporting the prevention of encounters with wild animals.

There are millions of solutions with geospatial data models. At PREDIK Data-Driven we help the agricultural industry to solve and anticipate problems in all their operational and administrative processes.

Top 5 Benefits from implementing heat maps in businesses

November 2021

The heat map is one of the most useful and powerful data analysis tools in business intelligence. It provides a visualization feature that presents multiple pieces of data in a way that makes immediate sense by assigning a different size and color.

New geographic information systems (GIS) allow us to see our complex world in a new way. With the right data sets, heat maps can be produced that show how different factors vary from one area to another. In recent years, several organizations have developed dynamic mapping systems that allow users to choose areas, data layers, filters, and presentation features. Read the complete article here
