GEoWebAgri II will enhance open standards and interoperability in information management whithin the framework of Precision Farming. Heterogeneous user groups, from different backgrounds with the need to access common spatial data sets, could benefit with an extensible and open data structure that can be created and maintained throughout different systems and located in different physical locations (web, machinery, office, etc.).


  • Methodologies for transnational Precision Farming solutions
  • Compatibility and interoperability of the components in PF solutions
  • Open Standards


  • Identification and specification of an application schema for Precision Farming Operations Management in the Unified Modelling Language (UML).
  • Definition and implementation of sets of conversion rules in a tool that reads UML class diagrams and writes corresponding GML code as specified by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and ISO 19136.
  • Development of an Application Map Web Service (AMWS) that allows for a standardized communication between technological entities involved in Precision Farming operations (e.g. sensors, decision support systems, FMIS, machinery on-board interfaces etc.).
  • Test cases of selected field operations management tasks (related to other ICT-Agri projects) will be defined and subjected to test and demonstration validating the defined data model.
