dc.description.abstract Agriculture sector plays an important role to achieve growth and poverty alleviation in any country and especially in developing countries like Thailand and due to this fact Government needs to aid the sector by providing useful services to farmers. These services can only be provided when concerned agriculture departments possess related data from field. The data is also useful for demand and supply analysis and disaster preparedness. Various approaches are being carried out to collect data from field and paper based forms are mostly used for this purpose but this process is difficult, time consuming, error prone and needs a lot of man power and due to this fact data cannot be analyzed timely and efficiently. This study provides a system to support agriculture departments in data collection process and collected data analysis using modern trends of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and with the concept of crow sourcing. ICT provides an easy mechanism to keep updated records from field by utilization of its various tools including Location Based Service (LBS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and Augmented Reality (AR). This system provides an android application to support data collection process by introducing dynamic survey forms capable of incorporating data for all crops, route guidance to find the nearest road to field and AR view to find the exact land and a framework to support crowd sourcing concept. The system also provides a GIS based desktop application to support data analysis including spatial analysis, data checking and generating summary charts. Finally, this system aims to provide state of the art technology which allows not only agriculture departments but also farmers, land owner and other people as volunteers to work for betterment of agriculture sector. en_US
