Fujitsu Ltd. announced Aug. 17 that it will aid in creating maps of rice paddies using proprietary Fujitsu image analysis technology.
In collaboration with the Federation of Hokkaido Agricultural Mutual Aid Association and the Kamikawa Chuo Agricultural Mutual Aid Association, Fujitsu's technology will use satellite images and aerial photographs to recognize the boundaries between rice paddies and the embankments that separate them.
The resulting data can then be used to automatically produce maps of rice paddies. By comparing the new maps with maps that have been produced by hand, Fujitsu will examine the usefulness of this technology in the operations of agricultural mutual aid associations.
