GEO-BASED MOBILE APPLICATION - CASE STUDY ON PRECISE FARMING

Dr. Rostislav Netek, Msc. Tomas Burian, Msc. Tomas Pohanka

ABSTRACT

The article describes the Mobigri platform. It is based on the interconnection between web and smartphone application used for collecting geographically based data. The case study is focused on precise farming, especially on sugar beet fields. The paper describes a more advanced application for mobile phones on the Android system. It allows collection and edit information directly in the field by smartphone. Massive progress in the IT field brings different views which strongly reflects the boom in mobile technologies, including in the area of precision farming and land-use registration. A case study on the territory of Olomouc region-Haná (Czech Republic) was selected for development and testing. The Haná region is one of the main rapeseed areas in the Czech Republic; sugar beet has been a long-standing tradition, and finally, there are many sugar factories in the area. The principle of collecting, analysing and evaluating data in the digital environment is an essential prerequisite for the possibility of realising precise farming. Data collection based on Geographic Information System (GIS) tools enables efficiently management and evidence areas of sugar beets.
