WORLDWIDE VEGETATION TRENDS AND ANALYSIS – CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

NGIS Australia in partnership with CSBP Fertilisers have created GreenPrecision, an innovative website utilising leading edge technology to deliver vegetation analysis across the entire world in an accessible and user friendly tool. By using high performing cloud computing and a massive archive of satellite imagery, users are able to compare vegetation for any location across multiple years to track variability and view changes in vegetation.

The GreenPrecision project demonstrates what can be achieved by using the power of location technology and the scale of cloud computing. NGIS is focused on applying the best of breed location and mapping technology to optimise business intelligence, communication and outcomes.

Try the tool yourself to see how biomass on your farm is tracking.

CASE STUDY: FERTVIEW

FERTview is built on the Google Maps platform and has been created by NGIS with CSBP. FERTview is a new online tool that uses agronomic and mapping data to help support better fertiliser decisions. The tool provides live access to digital farm maps in a simple, practical way to view, manage and get more from sampling, biomass and fertiliser application.

CASE STUDY: COASTAL RISK AUSTRALIA

The frequency of coastal flooding trebles with every 10cm of sea-level rise, putting a large amount of agricultural land situated along the Australian coastline at risk.

For the first time Australians can visualise which coastal locations could be vulnerable to rising sea levels driven by climate change. The Coastal Risk Australia website charts the majority of Australia’s enormous coastline and is free to use. It incorporates cutting-edge Google technology and local tidal data to accurately map how rising sea levels could encroach on coastal areas including productive farming land under three scientific scenarios.

Across the globe, sea levels have risen an average of 17cm over the course of the 20th century. Average sea level rise around Australia has been at a similar level. Scientists are forecasting sea levels will rise between 0.4–1.1m over the remainder of this century depending on how rapidly the world reduces emissions of greenhouse gases.

THE CHALLENGE

The Department of Water wanted to enhance their customer service. They knew the current process of responding to customer requests took too long. It involved manually extracting information which proved to be very time consuming. We were able to completely re-engineer the workflow by organising the data and making it accessible using spatial technology.

THE SOLUTION

The solution used a combination of mapping and traditional database technology to provide a simple, usable data interface. The interface is available to staff for updating and processing customer service requests. More importantly, it is also available to the public through a webpage where you can easily find the water information instantly.

“WIR [Water Information Reporting] has been a big success from the day it was launched and has been consistently processing twice the number of water data requests than the previous manual system”, Lindsay Preece, Manager, Water Information and Modelling, Department of Water, Government of Western Australia.
