Resolution is an easy to use mapping and planning tool which will give you the accurate view of your farm you have always wanted.
Resolution lets you draw a map of your farm, horticulture or cropping blocks. You can base your drawing on an orthocorrected aerial photograph (so that areas are correct) and load additional layers such as contours, roads, and waterways.
Once you have your base map, you can start planning -- work out the amount of fertiliser, spray, or seed needed for a specific area, and plan when you'll undertake different activities. Print plans for your contractors, fertiliser spreaders, staff, or consultants.
You can also record actual applications of fertiliser and soil test results, and monitor changes to the fertility of your farm.

OVERSEER is an agricultural management tool that assists in examining nutrient use and movements within a farm to optimise production and environmental outcomes.
OVERSEER calculates and estimates the nutrient flows in a productive farming system and identifies potential for risk of environmental impacts through calculation of nutrient loss as run-off and leaching and greenhouse gas emissions.
Its current uses are in the development of on-farm nutrient budgets, whole-of-farm nutrient management plans and, through the use of additional proprietary software, the development of farm specific fertiliser recommendations. Because it calculates potential greenhouse gas emissions, it has a potential role to play in any future emissions trading scheme.
OVERSEER is a valuable tool for a range of users, most particularly farmers and their advisers, and policy makers.
