When developing a product,
we start with your wish list.
When we introduced Precision
Map 2000™, we met your needs
for a quick and easy-to-use map-
ping program. Now you’re using
our products for year-round
Precision Farming, and your
needs for spatial data manage-
ment have grown beyond that of
a simple mapping program. For
this reason, we introduce our
new SMS™ Basic (Spatial
Management System™) software,
designed with you, the producer, in mind.
We make your life easier
Everywhere I go, customers tell me our
hardware produces valuable data, but those
who want to go beyond the basic mapping
capabilities of Precision Map 2000 have
been forced to use difficult and expensive
So we designed SMS to easily manage all
types of data gathered with Ag Leader prod-
ucts. Think of it as your new file cabinet for
harvest records, soil test info, boundary
data, and as-applied records.
One of the nicest features of the program
is its ability to layer data. Use SMS to put a
yield map over an as-applied fertilizer map
of the same field. Or, layer on a soil-type
map imported from some other source.
You’ll be equipped to make really meaning-
SMS will minimize the amount of time
necessary to store data and make
maps. You’ll also be able to use
it to create summaries of data
compiled over several years and
compare performance from dif-
Precision Map 2000 was
developed with a software part-
ner. However, since SMS was
created by our in-house design
team, we know you’ll appreciate
both the extra level of support
we can provide and our ability to
react to your needs.

Manager, has to say. His article is on Page 2.
