DAS Rural Intelligence Platform™

Gain access to reliable rural data and analytics from a single platform.

DAS Rural Intelligence Platform™

Digital Agriculture Services (DAS) has built the first, complete Rural Intelligence Platform™. Its cloud-based, geospatial architecture is founded on breakthroughs in machine learning or AI, integrating and connecting once inaccessible rural data with exclusive CSIRO science and DAS proprietary data and models.

Machine Learning and AI

Machine Learning and AI

The frequency with which our data is updated varies by data element, and ranges from daily to annual updates.

HOW OFTEN IS THE DATA UPDATED?

Consistent feedback from users highlights the quality of the data in the platform.


DAS integrates the most authoritative data sources from governments and public data sets along with the CSIRO – we also give users the ability to highlight any issues.

HOW ACCURATE IS THE DATA?

DAS does not collect any on-farm data, nor farmer data and meets the guidelines of the recently released code of conduct by the National Farmers Federation.


No Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data is found in the Rural Intelligence Platform.

Democratising access to data-driven insights, backed by science, is embedded into the DAS mission – along with building the prosperity and sustainability of agriculture.

We want farmers to have equal and unlimited access to insights that can help them maintain and grow their livelihood, feed a growing population and protect the environment.

WHAT ABOUT FARMER DATA? OR PRIVACY CONCERNS?

DAS data comes from myriad sources including:


Trusted Government Sources: We harmonise, unify and continually refresh public data sources into a cohesive national data set. 


Our sources included trusted public State and Federal government data, Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Geoscience Australia, the Australian Bureau of Agriculture and Research Economics and Science (ABARES), PSMA and others. We also integrate the latest Valuer-General (VG) sales data, along with VG property data going back 12 years.  


Unique Proprietary DAS Data: We add and integrate new data in the form of unique, proprietary geo-referenced data layers using public satellite imagery and extensive agricultural ground truth. 


These data layers include specific land and climate characteristics such as fire risk, drought stress, soil, land use, carrying capacity, slope and more for every farm in Australia.


We build in key agricultural and climate data, both historical and current, involving pasture and crop productivity metrics, topology, long-term rainfall deficit and most recently, Graincast metrics for forecast yields and crop identification.


Our integrated data sets include productivity scores – using earth observation, remote sensing, modeling, plant physiology and industry knowledge to measure the productivity of every farm and paddock in Australia every 17 days, going back 17 years.  


DAS is continually integrating new proprietary data layers to enhance the value of its platform. 


CSIRO Data: Our data feed from CSIRO includes rainfall deficit at a farm level, flood risk, frost risk and much more. 


Our remote sensing satellite and time series feed includes data from the present going back anywhere from 15 to 20 years.


Specific satellite sources include Landsat, MODIS, SAR and Sentinel 1 and 2. We also access Australia’s petascale Earth Observation Data Cube, as well as the Digiscape Future Science or Senaps Land software, APSIM and others.  


Part of what makes the Rural Intelligence Platform™ so unique is it incorporates, integrates and applies the deep knowledge and domain expertise of CSIRO’s leading agricultural, water, climate and land scientists.

WHERE DOES DAS SOURCE ITS DATA FROM?

Common Questions

HOW DO WE TRY OUT THE DAS RURAL INTELLIGENCE PLATFORM?

The DAS Rural Intelligence Platform is secure, easily accessible and cloud-based technology that is available here.


For specific solutions and enterprise-grade products, please contact DAS.


All farmers are given free access to the DAS Rural Intelligence Platform – this has been DAS’ commitment from the very beginning.

To our knowledge, DAS is the only ag-tech company in Australia to make its data and intelligence freely available to farmers and growers, who are some of our biggest supporters.

DOES THE DATA COVER ALL GEOGRAPHIES?

The DAS Rural Intelligence Platform™ is the only platform to provide complete coverage for Australia, with more geographic regions to come.

The DAS dataset is arguably the most reliable dataset in the marketplace. It also represents the only standardised view of scientific data covering rural Australia at a national level.

WHAT MAKES THE PLATFORM SO UNIQUE?

The DAS Rural Intelligence Platform™ brings together and applies multiple AI, machine learning and data fusion models to create a fundamentally new model of rural, agri and climate analytics.

Think hundreds of rural, agri and climate analytics in one complete, single, searchable reference system and living digital model of all rural land in Australia – with more geographies to come. The model and science is exportable and globally scalable.

The Rural Intelligence Platform™ is the golden thread that runs through all DAS’ growing software-as-a-service products and tools.
