The Kearney Web-based GIS team operates a complex online Geographic Information Systems (GIS) interface for agricultural research and Cooperative Extension outreach. The sophisticated online approach to implementing geospatial capabilities allows researcher the opportunity to explore spatial distribution of pests, crops and pathogens from an internet browser. This interface can allow researchers the added benefit of collaborating with colleagues in a larger regional area with shared maps and data displayed and queried from a spatial infrastructure – a map.

The intricate relationships between crops, soils, and pest pressure are shared with “spatial tags” which means all data are captured with a geographic marker, i.e. Latitude/Longitude Coordinates, address, cross street, Township Range and Section (TRS). With data that is referenced to real world location information, spatial analyses can be performed with greater efficacy and accuracy.

For example, adjacent cotton and alfalfa fields must be managed carefully to control Lygus bugs. GIS techniques now permit Kearney-based scientists to post maps that allow growers and pest control advisors to enter data on pest populations, pesticide use and other information directly onto the map-based data archive. Resulting spatial analyses have led to regional approaches to integrated pest management (IPM) of Lygus bug, leafhoppers, peelminers, avocado thrips, olive fly and mosquitoes that vector human diseases.

GIS techniques facilitate the preparation of special-purpose maps and other materials of benefit to agricultural clientele, regulators and the public. Scientists have access to Web-based survey techniques hosted by the Kearney GIS Facility.
