The navigation play important role in agriculture and food production. There exist set of tasks, where navigation technologies could be used. We could named such task like: • On line machinery management – flat management of agriculture machinery, on line fertilisation management etc.

• On line data collection – on line access to meteorological data, satellite imagery, sensors measuring, etc
• Traceability tools – evidence of all activities in the field
• Logistic –  o Inbound tracing systems. Systems for tracing raw material and resources at the input end to the production process back to their origin.
o Outbound tracing. Systems to keep track of products leaving the production facilities of an organization.
o Internal tracing. A method or system to trace resources through the production as the are processed.
o Fleet management systems. Systems that keeps track of all fleets or vehicles in the distribution channel

The Navlog designed and currently provide implementation of open systems, including:

• Mobile Units for data collection from machinery and cars
• Server solution for Web based management of agriculture machinery and cars
• Client application for navigation and logistic tasks
