IACS and GERK in Slovenia

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia has presented the internet applications of land use in Slovenia. Besides the data from the digital land cadastres, orthopohotos, data layers with land use polygons, and topographic data are also traceable. With the support of the GIS viewer-tools, common in every GIS application, the program enables the user to search the whole Slovenia. The internet application is part of the implementation of the Integrated Administration Control System (IACS). The reestablishment of IACS is a requirement for financial support from EU to member states. Slovenia has been using the... (read more)

Advancing Smart Farming Thanks to Geospatial Technologies

The Netherlands’ agricultural exports are booming. In 2016, a record EUR85 billion worth of farming products were shipped around the globe, making the country (with an area of only 41,543 square kilometres!) the second-largest exporting nation in the world. Precision agriculture, also known as ‘smart farming’, is likely to further boost these export activities significantly in the coming years, as geospatial technologies help farmers to continue to increase their production. The use of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) – in particular GPS – has already become mainstream in the agriculture sector. Various machinery guiding and positioning solutions are available for... (read more)
