Data collection and analysis are being refereed as one of the most important factors in communication of information. Data visualisation refers to the use of visualisations such as maps, dials, graphs, charts, etc. to communicate information in order to enable the audience to absorb and interpret data quickly and easily. For the agricultural sector, the use of data visualisation tools can help reveal important trends and different variables such as environmental factors, geographic location yield percentage, types of products, seed care data that effect changes to crop and yields.

This session will outline some of the agriculture open data visualisation tools providing information on agricultural science and technology.
