How our Maps are used

Health & Safety

Farm maps are essential for the health and safety operations of your business.

With On-site aerial mapping, you can choose to produce a map that highlights the different slopes and terrain of your farm, which is ideal for identifying areas that are too steep for staff to use bikes on.
We can also create custom icons or custom magnets for health and safety messages you want to communicate to staff and visitors to the farm. Bring us your needs and ideas and we will bring them to life.

HR

Creating a map with either On-site Aerial Mapping or LINZ Aerial Mapping will mean fence lines, entrance ways, troughs are all accurately recorded allowing staff briefings to match what they will find out in the paddock.

Farm maps are ideal for the orientation of new staff and explaining tricky areas of the farm.

Staff can use your farm map as a reference when they are out on the farm.

You cannot be everywhere – we help you paint that picture for your team.

Environmental Planning

We all know the importance of looking after our farm environment – let us help you clearly show in a visual way what you are doing. This is ideal to assist you when you are demonstrating to regulatory bodies what you have done and are currently doing on farm.

Accurately mark out waterways

Show areas of riparian planting

Show fence lines, especially around waterways

With On-site aerial mapping, you can choose to produce a slope map — identifying areas above certain degrees to comply with your council requirement.

Animal Health

On your map, you can easily identify hazardous areas for stock, new grass areas, areas that have recently had fertiliser applied, and areas that have recently had effluent applied.

An accurate map created from On-site Aerial Mapping allows you to work out the amount of feed for animals with correct paddock sizes.

Biosecurity

Have a plan in place before you need one. 

• Identify the areas where new animals can graze when they first come onto the farm

• Identify ‘hospital paddocks’ and include the farm map with instructions for your team if you have animals that you need to isolate

• Display procedures for visitors on the farm.

"Loved working with VizLink (Gemma) to create a custom whiteboard for our farm. She came to us with a lot of great ideas about what to put on our whiteboard & was happy to adapt things to suit us. Using the whiteboard & particularly the maps has made communication with our staff much easier, especially the pad of maps which we can give to staff, contractors and other visitors to the farm. Would definitely recommend Vizlink to others.
