Working

I’ve got some extra office work for a few months.

For once it’s actually something a bit more interesting and creative than general admin.  I’m working for an agronomist doing soil analysis zoning.

It looks really interesting.  They use geophysical surveys and satellite images to collect data about fields and my job is to use that data to define zones within the field.  They then take samples from each zone which are sent off to a lab for analysis. The agronomists and farmers then use that data to decide exactly what fertilizers are needed in each area for optimum results.

From my perspective it looks a lot like trying to convert photographs or pictures into cross stitch charts or simplifying them into bands of colour for artwork.  So it should be kind of fun 🙂
