1072 Research: Datasources Normal Reviewed

Introduction

Locate data sources for the following information:
  • API for getting climate zone from location
  • Crop harvest dates (by climate zone)
  • Crop growth durations, time to transplant, time to harvest (by climate zone)
  • Perennial vs. annual vs. seasonal etc. for each crop (by climate zone)
  • Weathed data (temperature, precipitation)
  • Probably more to come...
The users should be able to provide data:
  • Observations about plant development stages
  • Observations about plant damage
  • Probably more to come...

1116 Research: suggestions for planting crops Normal Reviewed

See Specs.

For the feature of offline suggestions for planting:

1239 Prototype: Adding group of plants to create beds Normal Reviewed

One of the comforts of pp should be that the app suggest you from a list of plants, which plants should go together in one bed.

The whole process is not outlined or described yet. Create a drawing and attach the image to that ticket or prototype directly in marvel (ask Franz or other managers to give you access to it): https://marvelapp.com/project/2098572/

Use the prototype drawing of the MVP to enhance the product prototype, see #1163

  • add a list of plants
  • suggest beds
  • let the user edit the beds
  • let the user move plants from one bed to another
  • give visual feedback if things work or not
1240 Prototype: Adding Plants to an existing bed in schedule Normal Reviewed

One of the comforts of pp should be that you can fill time gaps in a bed to maximize your garden yield.

Starting from the schedule view of a bed you should be able to add plants. pp should suggest what plants go well with the existing plants in the bed.

E.g. In the bed is lettuce, basil, tomatoes till end of April after that the lettuce is harvested and in the bed is space for new plants. Add new plants where lettuce stops and suggest what fits best

Create a drawing and attach the image to that ticket or prototype directly in marvel (ask Franz or other managers to give you access to it): https://marvelapp.com/project/2098572/

That will give us a tutorial for people to enhance the data where we are scraping from.

1471 Location to hardiness zone function Normal Reviewed

From practical plants, we have plants associated with Hardiness Zone .
Now we need a function/module that gets from
(lat, lon) -> Hardiness Zone

A Quick research only brought me maps about US and not much more, but it should be quite easy to calculate that with historical weather data.

First Idea: Easiest way, but maybe not the nicest solution would be to grid the world into A x A (e.g. A could be 50km) ask an open API for weather data of the specific coordinates from the last 50 years (ethically, by not asking to often) and then calculate the average minimum temperature of this point.

We found ftp://ftp.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/noaa/ for historical weather data. We can use this data for non-commercial use. First we need a script for going over the data (per file should be 365/364) entries - which is per weather station. The fields are explained here: ftp://ftp.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/gsod/readme.txt

1. Get the files of the last 50 years. Go over the files find the minimum temperature for each station, per year. Calculate the average minimum temperature. Keep the file general enough to change the time span, and maybe easily change it to for example average maximum temperature or average strongest winds etc.

2. Next step would be to calculate the station identifier to Geo Coordinates - we found something previously, not sure where documented: ftp://ftp.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/noaa/isd-history.txt

3. Function for finding nearest weather stations for Geo coordinates.

4. take altitude into (get altitude of geocoordinates) account (my weather knowledge -1° degree per +100m)

5. write api which takes geolocation and replies minimum average temperature of that location (keep general for)

6. a plus would be a nice layered map preferably on OSM for hardiness zones (this service would be public and used to make pr for pp)

1117 Research: How to figure out what crop should go in which zone Low Reviewed

To know which crop should be suggested in which zone, we have to figure out where to get this information from.

Is there database exactly for that?
If not we need to figure out how much attention a crop needs (also in relation to climate).

A nice difficult example is tomatoes, which are easy to grow in the south of Spain with almost no attention and are harder to grow in Germany where they need a roof, bind them to a pole, cut them, check more often for deseases (too wet).

Add this to the specs.
