A geographic information system (gis) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on earth’s surface by relating seemingly unrelated data, gis can help individuals and organizations better understand spatial patterns and relationships. The gps (global positioning system) is a constellation of approximately 30 well-spaced satellites that orbit the earth and make it possible for people with ground receivers to pinpoint their geographic location the location accuracy is anywhere from 100 to 10 meters for most equipment. The global positioning system (gps) continuously locates a harvester in a field (leick 1990) and, for each second, an onboard data card stores the geographic position and yield/moisture of the grain flow.
