Modern farms situated in urban or suburban areas, include various and in most cases diverse land covers. Land uses in
such farms may serve residential, structured, aesthetic and agricultural purposes, usually delimited inside the boundaries
of a single property. The environmental conditions across a farm, especially if it is situated on an irregular terrain, can be
highly differentiated. Managing soil resources in a small scale diverse farm environment in a holistic and sustainable
way should have spatial and temporal reference and take advantage of cut-edge geospatial technologies.
In present study, an 8 hectare farm with various land uses in the southern suburbs of Attica Prefecture, Greece was
systematically monitored regarding its soil, water and plant resources. Almost 80% of the farm’s area is covered with
trees, shrubs and low vegetation planted in a mosaic of parterres. Farm data collected concerned soil and water
physicochemical characteristics, plant species, topographical features, irrigation network, valves and infrastructure.
All data were imported and developed in a GIS geodatabase. Furthermore, web GIS services and a mobile GIS app were
developed in order to monitor, update and synchronize present status and future changes performed in the farm. Through
the web services and using the mobile GIS app, the user has access to all data stored in the geodatabase and according to
access rights he can view or edit the spatial entities. The user can easily make query to specific features, combine their
properties with other overlaying spatial data and reach accurate decisions. The app can be downloaded and implemented
in mobile devices like smartphones and tablets for extending its functionality. As proven in this study, web GIS services
and mobile GIS apps constitute an attractive suite of methodologies for effective and user friendly management of
natural resources at farm level.
