AgTerra Solutions: Pesticide Recordkeeping
Government regulations of today make pesticide recordkeeping as a critical as ever. Whether it’s guidelines set forth by the Clean Water Act, NPDES, WPS or another regulation, consumers like transportation departments, government agencies, utilities, and the energy industry require precise, accurate accounting of chemical applications.
AgTerra’s powerful spray tracking equipment paired with an integrated map viewer and complete reporting system allows businesses to automate data recording and more, delivering professional results that will set a business apart from the rest.
Are You Missing The Entire Picture?
Four key factors must be addressed and recorded when pesticide application occurs:
WHERE WAS IT SPRAYED?
Spray and no-spray lines are automatically mapped and tied to application reports.
WHAT WAS SPRAYED?
Select from custom built tank mixes that breakout to individual chemicals in automated reports.
WHEN WAS IT SPRAYED?
Real-time, live time stamps are automatically assigned to start and stop times on maps and reports.
HOW MUCH WAS SPRAYED?
Every drop of applied chemicals is tied to automated mapped spray lines and reports.

MapItFast and Strider
Lightning Fast Mapping and Reporting
MapItFast is a powerful web-based and mobile application that can be used on an Android smartphone or tablet to quickly gather points, lines, polygons and geotagged photos. Map objects may be placed using the device’s built-in GPS or by drawing it on the map. MapItFast works without an Internet connection and any data collected offline gets synchronized with a private online mapping dashboard when the device returns to a connected environment. The app can be used on its own or alongside SprayLogger, making it an ideal solution for collecting spatial data related to weed inventory and control.
Collect More Than Just Spray Data
Along with collecting application data through SprayLogger, MapItFast collects any other relevant data with Strider forms. These forms are totally customized to a business’ needs and can be used to replace forms that are typically filled out with pen and paper. When a form is attached to a map object, the data is automatically synchronized with a private Strider database. From there, the data can be sorted, exported to a variety of formats or generated as a custom report. AgTerra offers several pre-built weed inventory and pesticide application forms that can be modified to fit the specific data collection needs of a business.
Affordable Application Tracking
When used independently from SprayLogger, MapItfast and Strider can provide an affordable alternative to automated application tracking. The MapItFast app allows the user to place points, lines and polygons associated with a treatment and Strider forms can be filled out with the where, what, why information required for herbicide recordkeeping. Completed records can be viewed and shared through the Strider dashboard.
The All-in-One System
When used together, SprayLogger and MapItFast give businesses a complete system for tracking and recording day-to-day operations. Some examples of how MapItFast is used by companies include:
|___||Real-time location tracking to streamline operations.|
|___||Before and after assessments and reporting|
|___||User-specific projects set up through an advanced permissions system|
|___||Field data integration with existing databases and GIS|
Forms and Objects Come Together
Eliminate paperwork while mapping at the same time. Points, lines and areas are instantly linked to any forms attached to them.
Create Custom Maps and Save for Offline Use
Built-in basemaps can be cached for offline use or custom basemaps can be built and used in the app.
Simple Form Features for Quick Field Entry
Make forms easy to use with features like skip logic, filtered lists and lookup tables to pre-fill data fields.
Quickly Calculate Area and Distance in Real-Time
MapItFast automatically captures line length and polygon area when an object is drawn. Forms may be set up to perform a variety of other calculations as needed.
Easily Create Custom Forms in Excel with Templates
Strider can be used for anything that requires a form, not just herbicide applications. Use forms to record weed infestations, safety checklists, or even to generate invoices at the office.
Simple Export to KMZ and SHP File Formats
Data collected in MapItFast can be exported and shared in database- or GIS-compatible formats.
