Implementing a Cloud-based GIS System for Agricultural Resource Management

New technologies and government policies are both in favor of maximizing food production. The movement for sustainable agriculture is also significantly increasing in order to maintain a balance between environmental health and economic profitability.

The Council of Agriculture, Taiwan has launched a scheme named Agriculture Cloud Service Project that focuses on the improvement of agriculture cloud services and the establishment of a large database of agricultural information to support the nation’s sustainable agriculture.

On the basis of the project, Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute, Council of Agriculture, set up the cloud service for agricultural production area management to substantially integrate and share agricultural information about weather, soil conditions, fertilizer use, insect pest early warning and natural disasters, as well as relevant workflows.

The development of agricultural information application and integration system ensures that all the data on agriculture cloud database can be integrated into map through GIS geoprocessing technologies, to classify, store, and manage geospatial data in a cloud database according to Common Land Unit (CLU) for improving data accuracy of digital agriculture information management.

In addition, the system allows agricultural specialists, tillage managers, and farmers to quickly query agricultural and geospatial information of records of climate change, weather forecasts, water resources, soil, geology, topography, disaster prevention, etc for better planning.

Built on SuperGIS Server, the agricultural information application and integration system combines with various knowledge bases and decision support databases to display agriculture-related information such as map, statistical diagrams, and visualized charts for helping policy makers devise practical agriculture plans. Moreover, the system supports the connection with the websites of other government departments like Weather Bureau, Ministry of Transportation, etc., offering a more convenient way to access related information.

Due to the development of agricultural information application and integration system, both the agricultural experts and the officials can effectively query agricultural-related information according to different spatial categories and consequently provide farmers with real-time agricultural information based on each city or county and proper suggestions for fertilizer use or insecticides use.
