With the Cartography app, you can generate your production plans from an interactive map that combines Google Maps data with data in the iGus ERP.

On the map, you can, at a glance, differentiate cadastral parcels from different types of surfaces: cultivable, non-cultivable, cultivated or reserved to cultivate certain varieties. And you access the management information for each parcel or area identified.

At the same time, you can visualize the isolation zones, the pollination perimeters and some surrounding elements, such as obstacles that may impact the pollination of crops.

You can find, easily and quickly, the most suitable available surfaces, and distribute the parcels in the best way, in accordance with very strict specifications of isolation and crop rotation.


Cartography: general overview

A real strategic tool for an optimal distribution of agricultural parcels

The Cartography app combines Google Maps data with the data in the iGus ERP. Thus, your reading of the map is documented. And you can refine it according to criteria that you define.

With the Cartography application, you can:

  • View all the rotations made on a parcel.
  • Group crops geographically, per variety belonging to the same species, as for the propagation of corn seeds.
  • Ensure the isolation of parcels so that they are not contaminated with unwanted pollen.

Parcels are grouped per color. Thus, the various areas can be spotted very easily. And intruders detonate, immediately!

It is possible to display the pollination perimeter of each surface. And you control whether contractual isolation distances are respected, for example between different varieties of the same species. These distances vary according to the productions and are configured in a personalized way: Cartography adapts, whatever the perimeters required in the specifications.

You can also manage the obstacles that may impact the pollination of crops. They can be natural (forests, rivers ..) or artificial (dikes, high buildings ...). They can be represented on the map or you can add them. And the same goes for all types of data: you can define them on the fly, at will. The resolution can reach 1: 250 (ie 1 cm for 2,5 m), which largely surpasses the best resolution of the IGN (25 Scan, 1: 25000, or 1 cm for 250 m).

The ability to perform meticulous and exhaustive production monitoring

With Cartography, you have access to a lot of data about propagators, their identities and the contractual information associated with them.

The growing areas are mapped. They integrate several notions:

  • The physical parcels, which are similar to those of the land register.
  • The programmed surfaces, which reflect the production plan in iGus; they may have been obtained by grouping and / or cutting physical parcels.
  • Batches resulting from crop incidents, such as hail or disease.
  • Barriers and other environmental elements.

The equipment and means used by each farm are presented in a detailed list.

With Cartography, you can track productions globally, from crop inspection to final evaluation of production. This monitoring includes the official regulatory controls (inspection data, observations ...) and yield forecasts for each parcel.

The degree of detail of the application is as important as that provided by iGus. However, the concept of production plan is even more refined: you focus on the current campaign and the crop, but you can view the parcel history at any time.

Finally, the functionalities of its core are multiple: the varietal and genetic base, the production demands, the propagation offers, the monitoring of the planning, the generation of propagation contracts, the monitoring of the harvest. They are added to those already present in iGus: the calculation of the quantities to be distributed in TVK, the management of deliveries, the multi-year traceability of the batches, the interface with the official certification bodies (such as the GNIS in France).

Cartography: visualization of surfaces on the interactive map

Fast, easy and flexible to use

The map benefits from Google Maps data and updates. And with StreetView, you can explore places virtually as if you were there.

With Cartography, you do not have to be an ace of geometry! You draw your surfaces with the help of a mouse, quite simply. And the application calculates the area, automatically, regardless of the shape of the surfaces. Sometimes the cultivation of a variety under the same propagation contract is made on several parcels geographically distant from each other. In this case, the application automatically calculates the total area of ​​the different parcels. Distances can also be measured using the rule provided.

In addition, you can add GPS points on the map, to locate the tippers in which the crops will be deposited. When the time comes, the drivers will use a QR code to start their favorite GPS and get to the right place, to take delivery of the crops, safely.

You are here

Once data is added to the map, it is automatically and instantly linked to the data in the iGus ERP. Thus, two operators can work simultaneously on the same production plan: one uses the Production Plan screen in the ERP, the other the Cartography application.
