Business Challenges:

Agriculture is the vital source of wealth in Bihar. 76% of its population is engaged in agricultural pursuits. Bihar’s productive contribution in food grain, fruit, vegetables, spices and flowers can increase manifold with improved methods and system management.

Agriculture department of Bihar wanted to collect details of all lands of every village with their crops of different seasons (like Aghani, Bhadai), and they required a Statistical Report to analyze agriculture status of state. Data collection in No Network Area and uploading the data on centralized server was the biggest issue of the project, and they required an efficient and secured platform to show the data in form of reports and charts. Challenge was given to Trensetterz to provide a solution.

Solution:

We opts Microsoft SharePoint 2010 as web platform, Android tablet as data collector device with our specific android application “Surveyor” and “Autouploader” as Window application utility.

SharePoint 2010 provides a secured and well managed web platform. Trendsetterz used this platform to show the statistical data in form of charts and reports.

Surveyor is an android application, use to collect data for Bihar statistical application. This application contains the record of all districts, blocks and villages of Bihar.

Autouploader is a window application which is used to automatically copy the data from inserte android device and upload it to the server. Uploading process first checks the Data format and uniqueness then uploads it to the server.
