CapeFarmMapper is a Web Mapping Application that provides functionality to query agricultural, natural resource, farm and erven cadastre in the Western Cape, as well as to create geographical point, line and polygon features on a spatial interface. Other features include calculation of distances and areas, editing features and importing/exporting KML/KMZ files. The OpenLayers API is used to display and manipulate the spatial data and several base map options are available for overlaying the spatial layers.
The aim of the Pest monitor is to supply timely information about the activities of problem insects in the agricultural areas of the Western Cape. We hope that the information will be useful and that it will contribute to intelligent pest management decision-making processes.
The information is gathered at various localities in the Western Cape. These localities have been established as part of another project that deals with problems concerning pest control in the Western Cape. Funding for this project is supplied by the Department of Agriculture: Western Cape.
