Web application 

The Cropsmonitor web application (CMapp) is a powerfull agricultural decision support system and consists of several tools. 


Interactive mapping

The DASH tool is ideal for quickly viewing the latest satellite image of your farm. The layer menu button (top right) can be used to toggle layer visibility and select from a range of crop condition maps, including growth vigour, moisture, and TCARI. Clicking on a specific production unit shows details of the unit and access to additional functionality.



Change analyses

The COMPARE tool is used to compare different crop condition maps to one another. For instance, on the right, growth vigour is compared to moisture. The same type of crop condition can also be compared between different dates to identify changes. The tool allows for zooming in and out and the user can swipe the central bare from the left to the right.


Trend identification

The STATS tool ranks all the production units in terms of their growth vigour and moisture. Each production unit's condition is compared to previous dates using predefined colours and a mini graph comparing the current condition to all time, the last year, the last 90 days, the last 30 days and the last 15 days respectively. This allows for the identification of problem production units at a glance. 




The GRAPH tool shows the latest crop condition index and or biomass values of a particular production unit and compares them to previous observations. The graphs are fully interactive and allow for zooming to a particular date etc. 



Pasture management

The BIOMASS tool is dedicated to pasture management. The page contains an interactive map of estimated biomass per pasture. In addition, the page contains several interactive graphs.


The first graph (Biomass per Paddock) ranks the paddocks according to their biomass. Moving the cursor over the graph displays the paddock biomass values and highlights the corresponding paddock on the map.

The second (Biomass Growth Rate Per Paddock) shows the biomass growth rate (kg/ha/day) since the last set of observations. The final graph (not shown) provides the total biomass on the farm, compared to previous dates.
