Agriculture, the mainstay of national and sub-national economies has never been more important in reviving an economy ravaged by the effects of COVID-19 than at present. The global pandemic has shown the importance of food security and our ability to call on the nation’s food reserves at this time only validates the decision to prioritize food production.
Most farmers in Nigeria are rural farmers and so needs the Government to play a huge role in regards to favorable policies, agricultural research, grants to rural farmers, subsidized farm equipment, and storage facilities. The provision of farmers with modern tools will help increase the level of farm produce, as well as the rate and quality of products. Ensuring these supports reach the right farmers, in the approved quantities, and utilized properly, a GIS monitoring solution is required by the government at each level for monitoring and for ensuring compliance.
Geographical Information System (GIS) uses technology that can help in building a database of farmlands with their accurate locations, not just as a point coordinate but as polygons of the entire farmland areas. We classify these into small, medium, large, mega and super-mega AgroGeoCoop clusters. Displaying this data in a series of dashboards will make it possible for management teams and decision-makers to plan and track appropriate interventions.
This GIS solution is unique because it combines the capabilities of three technologies to better enhance Nigeria’s Agricultural activities. With this configurable application, organizations can build models that implement policies from management level to field staffs and farmers
Geospatial Big Data Platform
Geospatial Big Data Platform gives users access to the best type of satellite images available. The use of satellites in monitoring ground activity makes it possible to remotely visualize projects at different locations. These high image resolutions can be used for crop identification as well as assessing the crop and soil conditions. This collaboration allows other analytical tools to access the best quality of satellite data.
Image Analytical Tool
Users can leverage remotely sensed data to better understand the complex world. The power of the tool allows users to integrate the strengths of multiple sensors, multispectral, and Lidar imagery and produce a seamless product. The application of Artificial Intelligence and Deep learning in remote sensing has helped to effectively process geospatial big data and use analytical insight to forecast crop production, assess crop and soil conditions, detect crop nutrient deficiency, map water resources and, estimate air & soil moisture.
Web GIS for Agriculture enables users to build a nationwide database for mapping accurately locations of farmland, the details of owners, size of farm parcels, types of farm products mapped to seasons. Collection of farm locations can be done physically with the use of our field apps or remotely on the desktop without visiting the farm. It synchronizes the activities of field staff with backend/administrative staff, giving them the power to totally customize organizational workflows to match business needs. Users are able to share analytical results and accurate data within the organization and to stakeholders over secure connections on desktop and mobile devices. Collection and visualization of data are thus made possible in connected and disconnected locations.
