About the V3 Maps service


V3 Maps is an online service provided by NeoSpatial and SpecTerra Services to order vineyard vigour maps, based on airborne multispectral imagery.

NeoSpatial is a GIS and geospatial consultancy specialising in providing spatial analysis, spatial data infrastructure and modelling services to the environmental, viticulture and geoscience industries. NeoSpatial can unlock your valuable data to identify spatial relationships and visualise results in models. Providing data delivery services through cloud storage and easy to use web GIS access that can be viewed on your iPad, tablet or integrated into your in-house GIS setup.

SpecTerra Services develop multispectral sensors specifically designed for vegetation monitoring, with sensors operated in New Zealand from locally based light aircraft. Our operators acquire imagery for V3 Maps at the start of veraison. The data is then rapidly processed to classify vine canopy material (no inter-row cover crop, weed or soil material) and perform a vigour analysis using a well-known spectral vegetation index known as Plant Cell Density (PCD).
The output for vineyard managers is a bundle of practical map and data products for printing to take to the field and to use on your PC with GIS or vineyard management software.
SpecTerra has been providing airborne multispectral data for precision viticulture in Australia since 2001. We now operate in all major vine growing regions across Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain and Portugal.
