Issues related to the study of the state of agricultural enterprises using geoinformation systems and application of remote sensing data of the Earth are sufficiently studied both in Russia and in other countries. However, the enterprises located in small areas have so far been little explored. Currently there is an active growth of agricultural production due to the use of land by large agro-industrial companies and the development of farms. A consequence of this may be the inclusion in circulation of new, previously unused and unaccounted lands. In other regions, there is a significant reduction in arable land. Formal reports of land users are far from always reliable, because in some cases there is a deliberate distortion of the declared arable land for the purpose of increasing the volume of subsidies or reducing the size of the tax.

Cartographic materials, including land use planning and farm planning schemes, are extremely low in reliability, since they are usually used to formulate land use statistics and agricultural production, which further complicates the task of obtaining real information on the status and use of agricultural land.

To resolve the problems listed above, a source of up-to-date and reliable information is required. In solving several problems in the field of land use and agricultural production the remote sensing data is the only source of relevant and reliable information on the status of agricultural land.

The purpose of the work is the development of a geoinformation resource for the analysis of in-farm land management. The subject of the study is use of geoinformation technologies for the representation and analysis of spatial data that determine the state of the enterprise.
