Eagle Technology is helping farmers to use spatial mapping to manage their businesses. Last week I interviewed Eagle Technology GIS product owner Lauren McArtney and Scott Campbell, the company’s head of GIS technology for the NZ Herald.
There’s nothing new about farmers using spatial mapping to manage a farm. They have done it for centuries.
Now farmers make digital maps and, as the Herald feature shows, allows them to get more from their data.
Agricultural GIS seems to be reaching its stride thanks to the arrival of cloud computing, the Internet-of-things, drones and recent technologies.
