Farm-level data integration: future problems and consequences for public and private structures
AbstractOne of the outcomes of the EC-FP7 project “Future Farm” was showing the need of INTEGRATION, something that PROGIS has been doing for 15 years. Within the whole sector agriculture–forestry-environment-risk management there is an enormous need for integration that is not available yet, because of on side the existing admin-sector-structures plus on the other side diverse public and/or private interests with opposite directions and in many cases the not streamlined interest of ALL involved parties. On the other hand we have the nature that is fully integrated and should be managed by us! Nothing happens without being related to something else within the nature. We have to be more aware of this and have also to understand that ICT will be the driver of integration as data and based on it these information is necessary and urgently needed for public and for private structures. We can do it separately, doing things in parallel and multiple times with multiple costs and reduced results. The other option is to cooperate on an integrative model!
