The development of rural areas is an initiative which should hold prime importance in our exponentially growing modern world.

Areas such as irrigation, soil testing, pest control, impact of urbanization have greatly improved by the use of accurate Geographic Information. There is a growing agenda to prioritize healthcare and the monitoring of available primary healthcare resources in its raw form, such as the location of medicinal plants and its distribution.
