The i4M TracerMap App is designed to tackle an important but often overlooked task, boundary mapping. Boundaries are important for data processing purposes, operation planning and scouting. When field boundaries change, they should be updated to ensure the integrity of Agronomic data and in field efficiency.
The i4M TracerMap app is an Android based application that interfaces with the i4M Tracer GPS hardware. The user connects the TracerMap Android application to the Tracer GPS wi-fi network to log GPS co-ordinates as they travel around a field boundary. Boundaries are named by the user and stored locally on the device for future each.
Aside from mapping field boundaries, TracerMap can also be used for coverage mapping purposes, a handy tool for small scale farmers that run equipment that is generally not fitted with precision GPS capability such as small tractors and quad bikes. Coverage maps are stored on the tablet device for record keeping purposes.
