2 “The location of information is what makes the information powerful!”
4 Introduction The Technologies Remote Sensing Global Positioning System (GPS) Geographical Information System (GIS) etc. What?
5 Why? accuracy (accurate information) cost-effectiveness better perspective, enhance communication quick decision making. Introduction (Cont.)
6 NOW When? Introduction (Cont.) 15 years Evolution of Geospatial Technology
8 Introduction Current Key Projects Oil Palm Yield Forecasting –Accurately forecast oil palm yield for the next financial year –Accuracy of ≥95% at estate level Site Yield Potential –Establishing achievable and realistic long term yield target based on site specific criteria What?
9 Oil Palm Yield Forecasting
10 In principles, different kind of surface materials can be distinguished from each other by differences in reflectance. 02 D (36.5 MT/ha) 01 D (32.2 MT/ha) 01 A (25.5 MT/ha) CT38 (12.5 MT/ha) Wavelength (nm) Reflectance Index Case Study: Carey Island (2009) Ground Truth Sensor: Spectroradiometer Oil Palm Yield Forecasting (Cont.)
11 Oil Palm Yield Forecasting Field : 84C Year after planting in 2007 : 23 Spectral age: Yield (CIFOS/Actual) : 19.68/19.60 MT/Ha Accuracy: 99.61% (MT/Ha/Yr) Data Source: Landsat (30m) Data Cost: Free Download
12 Oil Palm Yield Forecasting
13 Leaf Area Index & Nutrient Mapping Data Source: SPOT-XS (20m) Data Cost: RM 0.005/ha
14 Yield Performance Index (%) Variance – Actual vs. SYP
15 Growth Performance Index (%) Variance – Spectral vs. Actual
