Dutch agriculture data platform launched

Farm Maps is a data platform which brings together all field information for the use of growers. The initiative of Wageningen UR and Agrifirm was launched on February 12 and combines precision agriculture and big data. The aim was to establish an independent and open platform on which companies can share data and applications that allow growers to obtain added value from their data and the innovations provided by knowledge institutes and supply companies.

Platform with all field information

FarmMaps, the Dutch name is Akkerweb, is the first platform that brings all field information together in one central geo-platform. The ‘cropping plan’ application, based on geo-data within FarmMaps, is the center of all functionalities with added value for operational management, such as fertilisation and crop protection.

Manage own data 

Growers can manage their own data on the platform in a secure way in their own, free, account. The data can be supplemented with input from, for example, satellites, soil sampling authorities, chain parties, farm management systems, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and sensors.

Quick and easy development of new applications

FarmMaps is an independent platform for precision agriculture. In addition to the basic applications, e.g, cultivation plans, a variety of organisations will use Farm Maps to develop and provide very specific applications to growers and consultants. It provides the maps, tools, services and functions for the quick and easy development of new applications.

Farm Maps aims to be widely applicable for growers in the Netherlands and other countries.
