New software communication link announced
GeoVantage, a provider of aerial imagery for the agriculture industry, and MapShots, a provider of precision agriculture software, announced an integrated imagery ordering capability between GeoVantage’s AgOrder and MapShots’ AgStudio product lines.
The integration of imagery order and automatic delivery capabilities between the two programs, AgOrder and AgStudio, enables customers to quickly and efficiently order and utilize aerial imagery to aid in making more informed crop management decisions thereby increasing profit or reducing costs.
The agriculture marketplace is seeing a continued trend toward the adoption of precision agriculture techniques. As such, there is a strong demand for precision agriculture software services that help agricultural enterprises extract the most value from the data sets collected. Farms are getting larger and more geographically disperse while the available time for field work has remained the same. Aerial imagery allows customers to “see” all of their fields and respond rapidly to changing conditions.
“I am pleased to announce that GeoVantage’s aerial imagery can now be ordered, delivered and utilized within MapShots products. GeoVantage’s aerial imagery service is known for its quality and timeliness, and MapShots software is considered a market leader. This is a perfect fit,” said Nate Taylor, GeoVantage Agriculture Sales and Marketing Manager.
“We are pleased to provide our AgStudio users with easy access to GeoVantage’s imagery products,” said Ted Macy, vice-president of operations at MapShots. “Having the GeoVantage data combined with other agronomic data in AgStudio will enable better crop management decisions.”
