FARM & FIELD MAPS
Farm & Field Maps provide an easy way to manage the logistics of farming. These customizable layouts can include crop locations, GPS collected features (waterlines, pivot roads, damage areas, etc), and satellite imagery along with numerous other layers. These maps make it simple to keep organized and the daily work moving along.
At Crop Quest, we take pride in keeping good farm records for our clients. Since 2000 we have been collecting spatial farm records that require digital field maps. As a result, over the years we’ve helped farmers draw and GPS millions upon millions of acres of field boundaries.
Unlike other crop consulting companies, every grower utilizing a Crop Quest consultant has the software at their disposal to create farm maps. And the nice thing is, it’s included as part of the crop planning service. So, you’ll be working with the same consultant for your crop scouting as well as mapping needs.
First of all, whether you prefer the ease of printed field maps or the flexibility of digital maps, we’ve got you covered. For the most part, we deliver paper and PDF maps. However, if you are the do-it-yourself type, we can help with that also. Our team regularly works with shapefiles, geojson, and google earth kml files. What’s notable about that, is many of the file formats we work with can be imported into free software and apps. Some of which we use ourselves.
Finally, it’s worth pointing out that Crop Quest consultants are able to create a variety of field maps from the farm records they are routinely collecting. Observations from crop scouting, soil sampling, and irrigation can all be combined into a concise report, and thus delivered through an app, email, or print.
So, contact us, we would be happy to explore the available options with you.
