  1. 1. Private open geo data portal Akkerweb Thomas Been CAPIGI GeoAgri 2016
  2. 2. Farmers field is black box  A lot off data available  Getting lost all the time  Not digital  Large number of sources  Not easy to obtain, share or put to use
  3. 3. Solution: Build an infrastructure!  Collect and store all relevant data  Arrange exchange of information between parties and applications  Develop the required knowledge to use the data  Combine data & models and to take action  Take advantage of visualization
  4. 4. Development of Akkerweb  Started as a (mad scientists) idea of Wageningen University in cooperation with Dobs IT Diensten.  Agrifirm joined as third partner: Development of Akkerweb V.2  Second track with Agrifirm: Development of several applications Professionalization of Akkerweb  Development of apps is getting WUR wide  Official launch of Akkerweb: 12/2/2016  Currently: Establishment of Akkerweb foundation
  5. 5. Independent Geo-platform
  6. 6. Puts the plot central • Insight through overview  All required information per plot available  Geo component provides visualization  Display the variation between and within fields • Data node for farmers  Laboratories & FMS  Machines and equipment  Sensors
  7. 7. Puts growers in charge • Make data work for the grower • Link information • Add scientific knowledge • Work more efficiently • Increase profitability • Give him ownership of his data • Share information with advisor, colleague and contractor • Weather and satellite data
  8. 8. Directly applicable • “What do I have to do” platform • Get advice • Produce work orders • Produce task maps • Run scenario’s • Optimal crop cultivation • Per plot • And increasingly per “square meter” • Focussed on ‘more with less’
  9. 9. Put Knowledge to work • Applications that enable action  Simple applications  Extensive decision support systems (DSS)  Variable rate applications  Available as an application on Akkerweb, but also as a ‘calculation engine’ which can be accessed as a web-based service by third parties.
  10. 10. Akkerweb puts data to work Data Knowledge Action Money
  11. 11. What Akkerweb offers! • For free:  Account grower  Background maps (Google, Bing, Openstreet maps, etc.  Basic APP’s (Cropping scheme, Satellite, Sensor, etc.)  Connections to retrieve and save (external) data  Sharing of information (MyFriends) • App’s on Akkerweb share:  Contact details  Plots  Information concerning their (produced) map layers • Available information: – Crop polygons from 2009-now, Agricultural acreage 2013 – Soil map, postal codes – Weather and weather forecast
  12. 12. What Akkerweb offers! • Links:  Farm Management Systems: CROP-R & CropView  NAK, NAK AGRO, De Groene Vlieg, AgroXpertus, etc. (data)  Alterra en NEO (WCS service).  Government (RVO)
  13. 13. What Akkerweb offers! • Links:  Farm Management Systems: CROP-R & CropView  NAK, NAK AGRO, De Groene Vlieg, AgroXpertus , etc. (data)  Alterra en NEO (WCS service).  Government (RVO) • Input:  Tractor logs, Yara sensor, .csv, .xlsx, .dbf, .dat, geotiff, .shp, .pdf, etc. • Output:  Original data, as a csv file, as pdf, as picture, etc.  Task maps in ISOBUS, shape and Yara format. • Models:  Crop growth Models: potato finished (grass, corn, grain, sugar beets next)  Soil Moisture Balance
  14. 14. What Akkerweb offers! • Open platform  No profit; but must be cost neutral  Each APP pays to maintain Akkerweb  Anyone can develop an APP (running on your own server or on Akkerweb Amazon server).  App’s can run on Akkerweb and stand alone.  Competition is allowed, but no deception of farmers • Fast development of App’s  Only interface (template will be available)  Add your own knowledge  Rest provided by Akkerweb
  15. 15. Base app’s in Store
  16. 16. Wageningen UR
  17. 17. Get info concerning your plot
  18. 18. 3176 rotation plans 27796 parcels
  19. 19. NemaDecide Geo supply chain Cropping scheme Digital sampling request StripBuilder DSS NemaDecide GEO Crop polygons Database soil sampler Taskmap nematostats Potato Info
  20. 20. Soil sampling request
  21. 21. Calculate sampling strips
  22. 22. Sampling result
  23. 23. DSS NemaDecide
  24. 24. Task map granulates
  25. 25. Potato yield Task map herbicides Yara sensor data for haulm killing Fuel usage of tractor Some other examples
  26. 26. Herbicide application app
  27. 27. UAV image
  28. 28. What's coming in 2016! • Variable rate application lime (Veris scan) • Blight app (including potato growth model) • Zoning app • Trips advisor app • Virus app • Bioscope service (delivering one biomass WDVI map each 10 days) • Fuel-log app (your tractor data on-line on Akkerweb) • GAOS • My JohnDeere connection, Agco connection • And more….
  29. 29. Four challenges! • Easier availability and flow of data • Big data analytics • More task maps (VRA applications) • More convenience for the grower
