New features on PastureMap

July 12, 2016

This is Christine and George, founders of PastureMap.

It’s midway through summer and we hope your season is going well. We’re grateful for all the love and support you’ve given us as early adopters and paid subscribers of PastureMap! Your support means the world. It’s been a busy summer for us too, and we’re really excited to share with you the new features we’ve been working on.

Stay with us, there are quite a few announcements…

Export maps

Now you can share access for your PastureMap account with off-ranch consultants and advisors by inviting them through email. Consultants can toggle between multiple client ranches. This will allow NRCS or extension agents, advisors, and consultants to be virtually alongside you during the grazing season, so you can get on the same page. Tutorial

Aerial imaging coverage

We’ve partnered with an aerial imaging company, TerrAvion, the largest provider in the Western United States, to bring you cutting edge aerial imaging services. Here’s what you can do with imaging delivered onto PastureMap every two weeks:

  • Watch forage growth and identify poor growth areas

  • Use thermal mapping to identify heat-stressed areas which will dry up first

  • Use spectral imaging to identify invasive species growth

For those of you outside TerrAvion’s flight zone, we’re working hard to bring you satellite coverage soon. Stay tuned.

Wishing you an abundant summer,

Christine and George
