Paddock to Reef Projector
Predict the water quality benefits of farm-scale agricultural improvement projects in Great Barrier Reef catchments
We created the P2R Projector – a cloud-based tool for groups who work with farmers to help them assess and prioritise projects for funding. The P2R Projector is based on an existing modelling approach used by the Queensland Government for forecasting improvements based on management change.
Users can create a project by answering a set of questions about the agricultural management practices the project will improve, entering a project budget and drawing the project location on a map. By looking at the project’s underlying soil type and climatic conditions, the P2R Projector then estimates the sediment, nutrient and pesticide (for some industries) load improvements (e.g. Tonnes of sediment saved) that would result from the project, as well as estimating the cost of each per unit of making the improvement (e.g. $/Kg).
The tool uses Truii’s core API to load spatial data, render visualisations and manage users.
