Agroquality's Electronic Cultivation Record

The main direct results from the implementation of the project aim at developing a novel platform, based on a special purpose Geographical Information System, build to integrate the first Electronic Cultivation Record for olives, for the total management of olive growing, are:

  1. Constant monitoring of the conditions under which the olives are cultivated and decision making according to real data
  2. Production and distribution of an innovative in a pan-European level of a “best practice” roadmap for the cultivation of olives
  3. Provement of the quality of the product through quantitative measurements.

The ECR integrates the following: Geographical Information System, which is build to integrate a full Electronic Cultivation Record for table olives and olive oil.

General Features of the GIS platform: a. GeoPresentation of the information. Composition of new information levels, retrieval of the geo correlated data. Soil Composition, hydrological and climate data will be presented on new automatically created levels of information. b. Correlation of the Geographical data with the Electronic Cultivation Record. The immediate presentation of data related to a specific cultivation becomes feasible, facilitating in the most prominent manner the process of issuing certificates of cultivation conditions.

Technical Features: Management and processing of multilayered digital maps. Metadata handling, geo-correlation and storage. Robust Role management. Bidirectional Interconnection for data exchange with leading applications (ESRI ArcInfo, Autodesk-Automap). Open Architectural design and development based on XML technologies, strictly defined by widely accepted XSD and DTD schemas.

Via a qrcode which could be placed on the product related documents or even it label anyone will have access to information regarding the route of the product from the farm to the store shelf. 

QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode). A barcode is an optically machine-readable label that is attached to an item and that records information related to that item. The information encoded by a QR code may be made up of four standardized types ("modes") of data (numeric, alphanumeric, byte / binary, kanji) or, through supported extensions, virtually any type of data. The QR Code system his popular in many kinds of industry due to its fast readability and greater storage capacity compared to standard UPC barcodes.
A QR code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square grid on a white background, which can be read by an imaging device (such as a camera) and processed using Reed–Solomon error correction until the image can be appropriately interpreted; data is then extracted from patterns present in both horizontal and vertical components of the image.
