The Queensland Land Use Mapping Program (QLUMP) has created a native app for both iOS and Android devices to collect field information in the compilation of land use mapping. The Land Use Survey App was developed by QLUMP as a part of Horticulture Innovation Australia’s (HIA) National Tree Project.
The Land Use Survey App captures on-ground observations made by growers and the general public. The simple interface allows users to capture a location, add comments and add a photograph to assist QLUMP identify tree crops around the country.
Industry engagement web map
A web map interface has been created for industry experts, stakeholders and the wider public to review the draft mapping and contribute valuable comments to inform the mapping. The spatial data from these two products will greatly inform the mapping of avocado, macadamia and mango tree crops, especially when classifying one tree crop from another.
Data helping industry
Collaboration in action
Horticulture Innovation Australia’s (HIA) National Tree Project is an excellent example of a collaborative project involving State Government departments, Universities and industry bodies. Participating stakeholder groups are federally funded through the Rural R&D for Profit program.
