Work­shop will give pro­duc­ers di­rec­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AGFORCE Projects will de­liver its first run of new GPS Essen­tials work­shops to pro­duc­ers next month at Biloela.

This work­shop will teach pro­duc­ers to use GPS to im­prove prop­erty plan­ning, mon­i­tor changes on prop­erty and en­sure prop­erty maps are ac­cu­rate on the ground.

AgForce Projects GIS tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer Noel Brins­mead said the work­shops were vi­tal for pro­duc­ers al­ready us­ing a GPS but also suited pro­duc­ers look­ing to buy a GPS and use it on prop­erty.

“Land­hold­ers will also have the chance to work out how to cal­cu­late pad­dock ar­eas and ac­cu­rately mea­sure dis­tances in­clud­ing over un­du­lat­ing ground,” he said.

Land­hold­ers will learn how to cap­ture prop­erty in­for­ma­tion with a GPS and trans­fer it into their com­puter map­ping pro­gram which will help them keep a record of prop­erty in­for­ma­tion and pro­duc­tion his­tory. The work­shop is on Wed­nes­day, June 17 and is $490 a per­son, with a 50% dis­count for ex­tra at­ten­dees from the same en­ter­prise. Visit www.ag­for­ce­pro­jects.org.au phone 3238 6048.
