Environmental conservation – more food on less land

Agriculture is vital to feeding the world’s population but its environmental cost is massive, occupying 70% of ice-free land and driving deforestation. Recent proliferation of agricultural data presents an exciting opportunity to apply advanced analytics to improve efficiency and reduce impact. In this video I talk about my DPhil research at the University of Oxford on computational simulation to help

Why we love open source mapping

Here at Sensonomic we are improving today’s farming practices through computer simulations, applying computer logic to land management. We are modernising farming with spatial data and spatially aware algorithms, developing models where things in the system are tied to a point in space, letting simulations play out in the (silicon) field. To visualise these models, then, we need some open
