Poland Chooses MobileMapper 300 to Spot Check EU Compliance

The agency responsible for the supervision and control of European Union agricultural subsidies in Poland, the Agency for Restructuring and Modernization of Agriculture (ARMA), has purchased 118 Spectra Precision MobileMapper 300 smart antennas. ARMA is charged with verifying, through on-the-spot measurement of planted areas during the growing season, that the size of the declared cultivation and cultivated plant species are in line with the request for EU subsidies. The farms are selected for spot checks either randomly or through risk analysis. The MobileMapper 300 was selected by ARMA because it enabled the agency to choose their preferred tablet solution, the Getac V110, and interface with their existing QGIS-based GIS application. NaviGate, Ltd., the Spectra Precision distributor in Poland, wrote the software for the MobileMapper 300 to provide accurate GIS measurement to the ARMA QGIS open source GIS back office solution.
