SPADE3 builds upon the work of SPADE1 and SPADE2. The SPADE3 project team will develop implementation guidelines for core documents, which include plan, recommendation, work order, work record, and machine reference file. The project team will develop implementation guidelines for the AgXML CommodityMovement message to support grain handling. The team will develop guidelines for data security (I.e., authentication and authorization) along with building out the infrastructure for authorization for data request and response to support the implementation of reference data services (reference data being data that supports transactional/operational data). The team will also begin to build out the infrastructure to support telematics. Finally, the team will define processes and data requirements to support crop scouting, crop nutrition, telematics, commodity grain movement, and AGIIS integration.
What's New in SPADE3?
WAVE: Originally arising from work by the Precision Ag Councils Telematics group, this product will identify standards and provide tools for mobile and fixed asset managment.
CART: Originating in AgGateway's Grain Council, CART looks to expand and implement standardized messages from the widely-adopted AgXML standards for rail and truck grain transport. The scope included tying loads from field machinery to scale data.
Crop Nutrition: SPADE3 will capture data exchange requirements for chemical fertilizer and manure use cases, propose enhancement to ISO11783 as needed, and provide requirements to the ADAPT toolkit.
SPADE needs much more than strictly technical work: if you're an expert in the business or agronomy aspects of what we're working on, your user stories will help enrich the project deliverables better for the entire industry.
