Geospatial Technology

The Geospatial Technology Group (GTG), formerly known as Precision Agriculture (PA) Group, focuses in developing oil palm resource information system (OPRIS), studying the relation of oil palm leaf and canopy biophysical and biochemical characteristics to remote sensing (RS) imagery data and developing precision oil palm plantation management practices.

To develop and promote precision agriculture equipment and technologies for oil palm management to enhance profitability and improve environmental quality using geospatial technology.

To increase oil palm yield through efficient use of agricultural inputs.

Establishing oil palm resources information system (OPRIS).

1. Development of enhanced OPRIS database.
2. Providing geospatial product and mapping services to oil palm industry.
3. Ensuring and delivering quality database and product.
4. Development of peat soil classification.

Understanding the relationships between oil palm biophysical and biochemical characteristics with remote sensing data.

5. Development of remote sensing approach for oil palm biomass study.
6. Development of crown characterization study from remotely sensed imageries.

Developing precision agriculture practices for oil palm plantation management.
