Agribusiness: High-tech mapping for biosecurity intelligence

GIS transforming agribusiness

Collaborative, online mapping has emerged as an agribusiness game-changer, enabling farm-level decision-making and expediting response to biosecurity events and natural disasters.

Leveraging an online, collaborative portal, the Australian tree-crop industry now has access to spatial information that displays the location and extent of the country’s commercial avocado, macadamia and mango orchards.

The data identifies individual tree species, location and associated crop data.

In the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Debbie in 2017, high-quality satellite imagery compared existing data with real-time imagery to rapidly assess damage and even pinpoint individual trees that had been affected.

Find out how this ground-breaking technology can:

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