Sugarcane Information System (SIS)

Uttar Pradesh cane development

GPS

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defence.

GPS satellites circle the earth twice a day in a very precise orbit and transmit signal information to earth. GPS receivers take this information and uses triangulation to calculate the user's exact location. Essentially, the GPS receiver compares the time a signal was transmitted by a satellite with the time it was received. The time difference tells the GPS receiver how far away the satellite is. Now, with distance measurements from a few more satellites, the receiver can determine the user's position and display it on the unit's electronic map.

GPS system for cane survey

Under this system field survey by manual means, is proposed to be replaced by GPS system. This system will ensure saving of time and money in cane survey and will further increase its accuracy and transparency.

Method for measuring sugarcane area by GPS system

This system includes two methods-

  • With the help of satellite, coordinates are received by pressing buttons on GPS device, by moving clockwise or anti-clockwise at all the corners of the field.
  • Standing at a corner of the field the start button is pressed and moving onwards round the field, end button is pressed and thus with the help of satellite measurement is recorded automatically.

This system has been used as trial in 53 sugar mills of the state. The result of trials was successful and encouraging.
