July 19, 2012 — MapShots, Inc. has introduced MapShots AgStudio Mobile Application Platform, to be known as AgStudio MAP, and MapShots AgStudio Select.
Co-developed with Cogent3D, AgStudio MAP is designed for use with the iOS operating system. AgStudio MAP currently is optimized for mapping field boundaries and recording data associated with precision ag soil sampling programs.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with MapShots AgStudio precision agronomy application, AgStudio MAP wirelessly transmits soil sample work order information and completed job files. AgStudio MAP significantly increases the efficiency of precision soil sampling workflows.
“MapShots has wanted to provide our customers with a more efficient application for their field mapping and soil sampling needs,” said Ted Macy, MapShots Vice President of Operation. “MapShots is very fortunate to be cooperating with Cogent3D in the development of AgStudio MAP. AgStudio MAP users will be reminded of the successful FieldLINK, a DOS-based mapping and soil sampling application, which set the standard for soil sampling software 19 years ago.”
AgStudio MAP will be available for download and purchase via the Apple App Store.
MapShots AgStudio Select is a Web-based version of MapShots AgStudio precision agronomy software, that was introduced at the 11th International Conference on Precision Agriculture, in Indianapolis, Ind.
Designed to supplement the desktop AgStudio application, AgStudio Select provides AgStudio users, and their customers, with internet access to all their precision agronomy data. AgStudio Select will enable much wider utilization of precision agronomy data, with its simple user interface.
“MapShots is very excited to introduce our first web-based software application,” said Ted Macy, MapShots Vice President of Operation. “We have taken a unique approach in the agricultural software industry, retaining the power of desktop software, best for those whose responsibility is preparing precision agronomy data. AgStudio Select is ideal for the consumers of that data, with its easy to use Web browser interface.”
