Farm field mapping is an important part of effective farm management. Easily accessible field maps can be a critical communication tool with outside vendors and of course, internally on the farm.
If you are a farmer or farm manager, I’m sure you have received many requests for a map. It sure was the case for me when I worked as a farm manager. Trucking companies needed a map with directions, insurance and farm compliance companies needed an updated map of what and where is planted. And there were many more times when a field map came in handy.
