Agricolus, thanks to the use of GIS (Geographical Information System) technologies, allows users to visualize and analyze information distributed in space, manage their data in a single platform and plan several operations.
The GIS or Geographical Information System is a tool used to process information derived from geographic data that allows users to collect, register, display, share and “portray” information.
“…the adjective “geographic” indicates that the information entered always has a spatial reference, a georeferencing; “informative” means that a series of information can be associated with the data. The noun “System” indicates an integration between the software user and the hardware, in order to obtain information that supports the analysis, data management and the implementation of strategies. A system includes digital images that can be processed, a database, geostatistical software and tables with associated functions. Without these elements the system would be very limited in its analysis capabilities” – Meijerink, A.M.J. et al., (1994)
