Wine Australia, one of the country’s biggest rural R&D organisations, is to use satellite data and geospatial analysis systems to create a “row-by-row” national census of vineyards across 65 wine regions.

The Geospatial Artificial Intelligence for Agriculture (GAIA) software has been tested in Tasmania and in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia.
