In order to provide SDSU Precision Agriculture Consortium (PAC) customers and PAC's staffs with better service, fast and correct information, and in order to search testing data for writing project report or applying for new projects, PAC needs a tool that can be used to search the results of projects that they have done and project related information easily, correctly and efficiently. However, before this project, there was no such a tool that can meet PAC's needs. Based on the PAC' needs and requirements, a new system was developed. This system (PAC Project ManagementWith Database Embedded Software Application) is designed in Microsoft Visual Basic and Microsoft Access technologies. It allows users to: store and link PAC historical data gathered from different projects into a newly designed database, search or retrieve information from database easily and efficiently, view the satellite images associated with their projects and find the location or the path of image archives easily. This program also provides functions that allow users to add and edit project information and PAC employee information.
