Field Mapping

The Field Mapping is done using the Topcon high accuracy RTK GPS receivers, Farm Works Mobile mapping software and Farm Works office software running on a Panasonic CF 19 field computer or the Topcon GRS -1 field controller.

To begin mapping, we follow the outside boundary of the entire farm, then the field boundary's thatField Map make up each individual field. Once the mapping is complete, the Farm Works office software will provide an accurate representation of the field acres, along with display labels and colored backgrounds for each field.

The software also has the ability to display roads and water ways over the maps and we can also import Google Earth, Mr. Sid satellite images and Ariel photos to enhance the background.

The maps can then be printed for the customer to distribute as needed or to keep on file.
