Data

Apps for Ag's Agricultural Database

Apps for Ag's own Data Portal is hosted by Onu Technology.

Government supported geospatial data can be found at GeoPlatform. An index of potentially relevant data sets and further description can be downloaded here. Special thanks to Tim Quinn, Chief, Office of Enterprise Information, USGS, and Jerry Johnston, Federal Geographic Data Community, who created the index. 

Microsoft has put together a great Farm Data Dashboard for the USDA Innovation Challenge.

We also recommend that participating developers download and experiment with open source (or paid) GIS software, such as QGIS or GRASS.
