Store Data Permanently
To determine whether progress is being made toward objectives, it is important to permanently store data over time to analyze changes. AgTerra’s rangeland modules help you establish a baseline and measure changes in plant community composition, cover, structure and soil resource conditions that occur over time. Field observations and maps are permanently warehoused in your private online account.
Geophotos are shown on maps and within electronic forms to help you visualize changes in plant community composition, cover, structure and soil resource conditions to observe short and long term trends at the same location.
