Spectrum Technologies’ upgraded SpecMaps web mapping utility is available from John Morris Scientific . In addition to creating instant visual pictures of soil moisture spatial variability on landscape and golf course turfs, users now have the ability to include individual sprinkler head locations and the respective radius of water throw.
The measurement summary has been updated to include lower quartile distribution uniformity (DULQ). With the upgraded spectrum SpecMaps, users can get value out of their existing portable field scout meters by producing 2-dimensional maps from landscapes or golf course turf data.
The SpecMaps Pro Turf allows users to upload geo-referenced data files from any field scout meter. The SpecMaps Pro Turf includes all the functionality of the original SpecMaps program. Both programs allow users to map data from most geo-referenced meters that measure turf colour, soil EC (mS/CM), soil compaction or soil moisture (% volumetric water content).
