My name is Axel Hörteborn and I have created this plugin in order to illustrate data from farms that have Geographical information.

I grew up on a farm on the Swedish south cost, I graduated from Lunds technical faculty with master of science in Risk Management and Safety Engineering in 2014. Since 2014 have I worked on a consultant company focusing on maritime risks, I normally do risk assessments for ship operations and maritime infrastructure like bridges. I moved to Varberg in 2015 (doing Kite surfing when it is windy on my spare time), hence I work in Gothenburg, giving me 2 times 40min every day to work on this project.

My father has always had a passionate interest of technology and potatoes. This plugin has been developed since 2015 when my dad connected the potato planter and the potato harvester to the GPS in his tractors. The amount of data that was collected was huge and I wanted to illustrate the data so used my knowledge in GIS and big data and started to write the code for GeoDataFarm.

If you have any question regarding the plugin don’t hesitate to contact me on
