Few organizations have the advanced GIS capabilities of ACS and our sister organization, Agrinetix. Every map that accompanies an ACS nutrient management plan or custom fertility plan comes with a set of professionally prepared maps. We start with a technician who will visit the farm and “ground truth” the streams, waterways, field boundaries, wetlands, pasture and wooodlands. They will indicate laneways, wells, sinkholes, ditches, or any other unique characterisitcs. From here the information goes to our “mapping group” where several GIS professionals are on hand to develop the maps. Once these maps are developed for your farm, we work to keep them updated when you add new ground, when boundaries change or when other circumstances warrent changing them.
For CAFO clients, updated maps are included with your annual CAFO update plan, as well as with the spring fertility binder, and if necessary, fall manure spreading recommendations. We also offer complete farm overview maps which shows the entire farm field layout on a poster size map, allowing for improved communication among the staff.
If you use Fields and Crops Manager software, you also have the ability to pull up these types of maps through the software.
