The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) has launched a Geographic Information System (GIS) viewer providing a one-stop portal of data.

The system allows the ministry to take different types of data sets and turn it into an easy-to-understand visual like a map.

“Extreme weather conditions impact our farmers’ ability to planting, harvest their crops, financial assistance programs can be a critical lifeline,” said MDARD Director Gary McDowell.
