The objective of this research was to systemise knowledge about floral resource availability from a number of underlying datasets, and present this information to beekeepers through a web mapping portal. Beekeepers, supported by such information equally well at home or in the field, will profit from making better informed planning decisions, moving less, and with less risk.
The project succeeded to demonstrate a correlation between freely available satellite data and flowering patterns of eucalypt, the resource of main interest for the beekeeping industry. It also set up a flowering calendar as a dynamic webmapping application, for the use by beekeepers.
