NGIS win APSEA People and Community Award

NGIS Australia won the regional Innovation and Commercialisation award at the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards in April.

The APSEA awards recognises excellence by organisations and individuals in the spatial industry across the Asian Pacific region.

NGIS Australia, in partnership with CSBP Limited, received the Innovation and Commercialisation award for their technology, GreenPrecision.

Green Precision is a the tool using cutting edge technology to analyse vegetation on a global scale, over a period of time. The user friendly and accessible tool helps farmers understand the variability of crop and pasture growth, enabling more efficient decision making.

The tool uses Google Earth Engine, which combines a multi-petabyte catalogue of satellite imagery and geospatial datasets with planetary-scale analysis capabilities. Google Earth Engine makes the data available and useful for scientists, researchers, and developers to detect changes, map trends, and quantify differences on the Earth's surface.

NDVI imagery from satellites is analysed in Google Earth Engine to give farmers a snapshot of the biomass on their property on a monthly basis, stretching back four seasons so they can understand how their fertiliser and water use impacts on their crops at different stages of the cycle.
