Property computer mapping - An essential management tool
Property computer mapping assists with the management and planning of infrastructure like fences and irrigation lines, calculating paddock areas, monitoring water points and implementing management tools like cell grazing schemes and fire management plans.
With the right mapping software landholders can access mapping data via the internet from satellite imagery to the latest state government mapping data. Being able to access this data means you can create an effective property map.For more information on the different types of imagery used to create your maps click here.

Blackall producers Simon and Christine Campbell (pictured left) use satellite imagery and property mapping to set optimum stocking rates.
"The satellite photo provides clear and simple boundaries of similar grasses,” Mr Campbell said.
"Being a cattle-only business, we need heaps of grass and need to know exactly how much we have.”
