The use of maps has always been a feature of importance for the ag sector. In the past, watching from above was vital for the feudal lords to have an overview of their lands and for this reason they built their homes atop the hills. This was probably also significant before that.
In the last few years, GPS software expanded the opportunities to plan and manage production systems by using satellite images and geo-positioning tools for farm-machinery.
Currently, Google Maps is the most important service providing geo-positioning for web applications, from a hybrib platform called “mashup”. Farmsphere.com has integrated this, adding specific tool for agribusiness, to do business easier and more efficient.
Among the advantages of geo-positioning, we can mention the bridging of geographical distances and the quality of satellite images for analysis and estimates.
