The Agriculture Information Portal (AIP) provides a gateway to geo-information data and application tools. The AIP facilitates the sharing of spatial and non-spatial data. It allows for the integration of various web-based applications and provides tools to support informed decision-making in Afghanistan.
Key components of the Agriculture Information Portal
|Data Viewer||The data viewer allows visualization of geospatial and tabular data in the form of dynamic maps.|
|Data Catalogue||The data catalogue facilitates data discovery and dissemination. It allows users to search for spatial and non-spatial data stored in the catalogue. Users can also view detailed metadata.|
|Applications||The applications component hosts various web-based apps that provide tools for visualization and informed decision-making on agriculture. It currently consists of the MODIS NDVI, the Anomaly Information System, the Irrigation Canal Information System, the Crop Information System, and the Agro-met Information System.|
The interactive platform enables users to view province-level information on crop statistics-production, crop area, and yield for wheat, rice, maize, and barley; crop calendar-sowing and harvesting periods for fruits, vegetables, and cash crops; and commodity market price of crops, vegetables and livestock.
