Intelligent integration of source of information for business specific, location based planning for the production of energy crops (German: Intelligente Vernetzung verteilter Informationsquellen zur betriebs- und standortspezifischen Planung der Energiepflanzenerzeugung).
Decision making in crop production is essentially stamped by location-based or more precisely by space-oriented information or also by particular location driven situations. This is for example the case for the production of food and renewable raw-materials. Indeed, the cultivation of bio-raw materials can in certain regions lead to severe irregularities in the configuration of crop rotations. According to this fact, farmers and regional experts producing renewable raw materials mostly rely on new spatial-data-oriented decision making tools.
Within the RAPR project, DFKI conducted a feasibility study in Rhineland-Palatinate to show the benefits of a location-based biomass-planer using digitalized geographic information about ground allocation (FLOrlp) and soil quality (LGB). This project resulted from the successful cooperation of the different geologic and plant cultivation consulting facilities in Rhineland-Palatinate.
With the IVIP project, we intend to fill in the gap between the bid of information from LGB and the valuable location-based consulting services of DLR/ZEPP/ISIP in Bad Kreuznach by using the Web-based Spatial Decision Support System prototype developed in RAPR.
