From the Farm
“It never gets old looking at these maps, I love people’s faces when they see a picture of the actual rock.”
— Devin Nohl, MN Farmer
“Seeing how the team used the Rock Map and the Rock Picker to pick the troublesome rocks was remarkable. It saved me time during a tight window around planting.”
— Mark Baune, ID Farmer
“The mapping was really impressive. You could easily filter it based on rock size and if you were in a hurry and wanted to just pick the larger rocks in an instant the software would tell you the exact location of all those rocks.”
— Conrad Arnzen, ID Farmer
Rock Map FAQs
TerraClear’s Rock Map gives you the ability to know where those frustrating rocks are in your field before they become a problem. The Rock Map shows you the size and location of each rock and tracks your progress as you pick them, making you more efficient at getting the job done. Another benefit of the Rock Map is that it increases your picking window because you know the exact location of the rocks in your field. This means you can even pick efficiently post-planting, when often rocks are harder to spot. Learn more about TerraClear’s rock mapping and end-to-end solution here.

To generate the map, we fly your fields with a drone and capture high-resolution imagery. The images are then processed using artificial intelligence to pinpoint the location and the size of rocks that are 8" and larger. The map is delivered to you on our easy-to-use TerraClear app (Android or iOS), which not only shows you where the rocks are located, but using GPS it guides you along the most efficient route and tracks your progress.
The TerraClear Rock Map can be generated on many field conditions but is most accurate when done on cultivated-bare soil fields, early growth pastures, low emergence seeded fields, and medium to low residue or stubble fields. The bottom line is that if the rocks are visible, TerraClear’s Rock Map will work. Learn more about our Rock Map here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The location accuracy of rocks on the Rock Map is less than 50cm. Accuracy using the map in the field to locate rocks is dependent upon your device. Most farmers are successful using the native GPS on their mobile devices (iOS or Android). Learn more about TerraClear’s Rock Mapping Service here.
We deliver every rock map through TerraClear’s easy-to-use mobile app (Android and iOS). Once we’ve processed your map, we notify you and provide instructions on how to access it.
TerraClear’s Rock Map is easy to use and does not require special equipment. To view and use the Rock Map, you will need an Android phone, iPhone, or tablet with GPS.

Once you’re notified that the Rock Map is available to you via the TerraClear Mobile app, you will see exactly where those troublesome rocks are. By enabling GPS and activating “pick mode” in the app, you are presented with an optimal path to guide you through the field. All rocks within your path are automatically marked as picked as you travel from rock to rock.
Currently, mapping is only available through TerraClear.
