Spatially Smart Wine – Testing Geospatial Technologies for Sustainable Wine Production

In this research, we evaluate geospatial technologies for precision viticulture, supporting organic and biodynamic principles. We demonstrate the vineyard application of a tele-operated vehicle with three dimensional laser mapping and GNSS localisation to achieve centimetre-level feature position estimation.
Precision viticulture is not a new concept, having evolved from precision agriculture in the 1990s. Geospatial technologies have much to contribute to this field, with smaller scale vineyards requiring customisable applications and high precision positioning. Sustainable farming practices, including organic and biodynamic principles, further require the integration of multiple layers of spatial information to optimise yield and achieve long term sustainable outcomes. Key applications for geospatial data include tailored multi-layer farm maps (information systems), variable mulching, irrigation, spraying and harvesting. Read More
