Web services, APIs and associated data sources
The web services, APIs and associated data sources are served off DEDJTR infrastructure. These are available to access freely from the GitHub ‘FarmBuild’ account. A simple registration process is needed to access the Soil Information Service, and users will be provided with an agreed service level.
- Web Feature Services
- Soils of the Goulburn Murray Irrigation District
Extensively surveyed in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s for texture, colour, thickness and the presence of lime and gypsum to between 1.2 m to 2.1 m depth. Soil maps were prepared using aerial photography and digitised to provide a detailed soil map.
- Victorian Rural Parcel and Agricultural
Derived from the Victorian Land Use Information System (VLUIS) data set with urban parcels removed. Covers the entire landmass of Victoria and attributes separately describe land tenure, land use and land cover for each cadastral parcel across the State. For further information on the VLUIS project visit Victorian Resources Online.
- Soil Information Services
- Soil Area Calculation Service
This service returns spatial intersection of the Farm Data Block (farm boundary and paddocks as defined by user) with the soil survey information currently known for the Goulburn Murray Irrigation District.
- Farm Data
To facilitate the integration of various FarmBuild components, the Farm Data Block is a block of data that can be created, used and shared. The Farm Data Block stores all data generated by the FarmBuild components within a simple JSON structure.
- Web Mapping
- search by address
- create/edit a farm boundary
- create farm paddocks
- attribute farm paddocks
- assign farm paddocks to paddock groups through a defined list in a JSON file
- export mapping data as JSON through the Farm Data Block JSON structure, or as GeoJSON and KML formats
- Whole Farm Nutrient Balance Calculator (Dairy)
**NEW** Animal Density Mapping is now available to support the mapping and monitoring of cows/animals across a farm according to animal-hour, paddock area and number of animals. Provided as a generic open source model, this new function can be integrated with a range of applications including nutrient and grazing models.
**NEW** Benchmarking Whisker Charts have been added to the Dairy Nutrient Calculator. Benchmarking parameters estimated from 60 sets of farm data have been hard coded into the version available on GitHub.
- Soil Sample Importer
Designed to stand-alone, the web mapping sample can be integrated into new or existing systems by third parties. This is an important component required to develop applications that contain data with a spatial context. The web mapping sample includes the ability to:
Through the Farm Data Block JSON structure, the exports are interoperable with other FarmBuild components.
**NEW** A Map Print Service allows you to print your output from the FarmBuild mapping service by returning a PDF file via an API.
