How it works
Data and mapping tools for accurate planning
FarmMap4D gives land managers secure on-line access to accurate digital property mapping, the ability to analyse property utilisation and land condition and tools to plan for future management and infrastructure.
About the mapping tool
FarmMap4D gives you the power of a GIS information system in an on-line format , that is simple to operate. This customised and easy to use mapping, reporting and analysis tool allows land managers to analyse the condition of their properties over time, and better understand their long-term carrying capacity and pasture utilisation. FarmMap4D boosts productivity and sustainability by arming land manager with the best data available, so you can make good strategic plans for grazing development.
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure” – P Drucker.
The power of FarmMap4D is that it gives producers an accurate tool to manage their property and make management decisions. The use of the distance from water tool and stocking rate calculator are precise management tools that can be used to manage stock numbers improving utilisation of pasture and land degradation. . Creating a more resilient and competitive business for the grazier, who is able to better manage which likely translates to increased ground cover, reduced runoff and ecosystem services biodiversity outcomes and moisture retention.
This tool gives giving every land manager access to accurate property planning and management tools. Land managers also have the ability to capture information from the field, using handheld devices such as GPS and smartphones and apply it to their maps. When planning infrastructure like pipelines GPS coordinates can be taken from the map and given to workers to use in the field.
The ability to monitor the effect of management decisions on groundcover is vital to good production and environmental management. This can be very difficult to do over very large areas. FarmMap4D provides secure on-line access to spatial data such as high-resolution time series satellite and ground cover imagery. These tools allow you to analyse the impact of management decisions and adjust property utilisation and plan property development.

Users of FarmMap4D can access a very high-resolution satellite imagery web map service called DigitalGlobe which greatly enhances the primary task of mapping property infrastructure, which is a vital tool in property planning and management processes.
The Images below show how the service is able to provide further support the FarmMap4D Spatial Hub program.
