S. Korea to release public digital agricultural map service

Date: 2022.01.05

In an effort to accelerate the adoption of smart farming, South Korea will release a digital "Farm Map" containing data on farmlands and topographical information. The service is useful when farmers make decisions based on cadastral maps or when they select coordinates for the operation of unmanned farming vehicles and drones.

Currently, web service portals such as Naver and Kakao provide free digital map services including satellite images, cadastral maps, and 360-degrees images of streets. However, such services do not provide information about lands. Farmers or those who wish to know more about the land characteristics of specific areas should visit actual locations or local agricultural institutes.
