Agricultural Statistics

The Agricultural Statistics project is an initiative that demonstrates the importance and power of utilizing spatial geography in obtaining quality agricultural data and information. This contributes to cost reductions and expedites the survey process compared to traditional methods.

Plant Atlas

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Directorate at the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) released a Plant Atlas in 2022. It includes maps of vegetation cover, classifications, agricultural crops, and their locations in the Kingdom. This was achieved by employing high-resolution satellite imagery and remote sensing techniques using the American satellite (GeoEye) and artificial intelligence programs. 

This project aims to identify agricultural and plant areas; measure and classify the concentration of chlorophyll, which is an essential component of plant health indicators; and classify vegetation cover according to length. Additionally, it classifies crops and agricultural fields according to their types, providing this important information to specialists through the Bahrain Spatial Data Infrastructure (BSDI) Portal.

Soil Mapping

Soil is the cornerstone of agricultural development projects. The presence of suitable soil for cultivation which contains essential nutrients for plant health contributes to the success of agricultural projects. The main objective of this project is to produce maps of agricultural soil properties in Bahrain. It aims to collect, analyze, and produce spatial information related to soil through remote sensing techniques and field surveys. This is done to develop maps specifically related to soil characteristics, such as soil salinity percentages and suitability for agriculture, among other properties. The project's outputs offers spatial information valuable to various fields including agriculture, construction, and development.

Plant Vitality Indicators

Vegetation cover is one of the most important natural resources for many countries. These countries prioritize the protection and development of vegetation cover to preserve and enhance food security. In light of this, the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) conducted a detailed study of vegetation cover in the Kingdom throughout 2019, with a focus on assessing overall plant health and identifying areas that require special care. The study involved identifying agricultural areas and chlorophyll concentration levels in plant leaves, as well as nitrogen and water concentration. This contributes to understanding overall plant health and identifying areas where plants and crops suffer from drought and diseases.
