GIS Field Survey Application for Agriculture Planning and Development Print E-mail
Written by Supergeo Technologies   
Tuesday, 13 August 2013

Inaccurate data collection may result in unwise decisions. To avoid this problem decreasing the operational efficiency, Ministry of Agriculture, Republic of Indonesia used GIS to precisely record and publish the agricultural data for operating agriculture and funding Schemes.

Indonesia is a country rich in natural resources in Southeast Asia. Its agricultural production is the key to the economy of Indonesia which contributes 15% to the GDP, and the farm labor accounts for up to 43% of total employment. To facilitate the sustainable agricultural development, Indonesia government has invested more than 7 million US dollars annually in launching diverse grant-in-aid projects.

With the mission of establishing and operating policies in agriculture fields, Ministry of Agriculture, Republic of Indonesia (MoA) is responsible for developing a fair trading system in agricultural commodities and enhancing agriculture production through providing agriculturists with proper funding, seeds, insecticide, etc.

To obtain and manage spatial information of each farmland correctly, MoA developed an Agriculture Field Survey System with SuperGIS mapping solutions that are available in mobile devices, desktop, and server applications to help the MoA personnel maximize field productivity, perform data editing and analysis, as well as integrate and share the latest spatial data and GIS services across the sector.

The Agriculture Field Survey System allows MoA to overcome the disadvantages of the traditional paper-and-pencil survey mode, complete data collection of crop types and conditions, and perform precise measurement of farmland size in each district. As a result, the agency could effectively manage the farmlands and crops, reduce cost of unnecessary waste of resources, and formulate feasible funding and agricultural development plans with accurate and up-to-date data.

In this project, the desktop GIS software customized by SuperGIS Desktop 3.1a helps MoA easily visualize and analyze field data, ensuring that the integrated agricultural data can be updated and managed through enterprise geodatabase. Besides, server GIS also serves as a full-function platform for data synchronization, management, and sharing. Therefore, the cost of data duplication and storage could be significantly reduced.

As for data capture, the Agriculture Field Survey System developed by SuperPad 3.1, the professional mobile GIS, enables surveyors throughout the country to smartly measure farmland areas, add attributes, and take pictures for crops using mobile GIS and GPS tools. It also ensures that newly collected agricultural data can be uploaded and well managed on server, bringing MoA the real situation of fields, corps, and pesticides.

The comprehensive GIS solutions built in SuperGIS software have assisted Indonesian government, like MoA in making wise decisions on granting funding with scientific methods, as well as promoting the efficiency in developing subsidy policies to improve the national agricultural development.
