Map Viewer Software Module
The E4 Map Viewer software module allows customers to analyze field data visually and interactively. On full-color, easy-to-read maps, customers can see nutrient-specific distributions (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, etc.), seed placements, yield variations, and more. The Map Viewer integrates Google Maps functionality, so users can zoom and pan and switch map views using intuitive, familiar controls. Most importantly, maps can be compared side-by-side, with consistent scaling, so customers can readily see the relationships between inputs and outputs, actions, and results.
There is no charge for using the E4 Map Viewer module. It is made available to customers using any of E4’s other software modules or services.
How It Works
- If field parameters are not already in the system, customers configure them using the E4 Gateway module. If production history data is available, it too is normalized and uploaded to the system.
- Interactive maps based on any data that is available can be generated on demand. Full-featured controls allow customers to zoom, pan, and alternate map types.
- Customers can print and/or email maps for offline viewing.
Key Features & Benefits
Maps of All Kinds: Virtually any kind of field data that has associated GPS coordinates can be mapped. So the more data you collect in the E4 Crop Intelligence system, the more maps you’ll have at your disposal. Common maps show field boundaries, sampling locations, seed placement, yield, soil and plant tissue chemistry, variable-rate nutrient applications, and more.
Industry-Leading Functionality: The interactive maps in E4 Crop Intelligence are powered by Google, the industry leader in web mapping services. Google maps set the standard for highly usable, intuitive features and controls.
