Food distribution is a global arena where uncertainty and complexity is high in identifying the current capacity of food production and distribution. We are providing building blocks that will address the existing spatial food distributions of two developed countries for which we have required available data. Based on our data we reveal the increasing divide amongst developing countries by the current excess of resource trends from the following countries: US and Australia.

This project is solving the Food Directions challenge.


Our model will lead other countries to reframe food production capacity development through a universal imagery platform design that integrates crowd sourced data and government agency data that maps how current global food needs are met through the reliance on international food trade. Based on our data we can determine which countries are capable of becoming sustainable.Some countries face too many factors that decrease their chance of attaining a self sustaining state, these factors include the climate trends and how the trends will hurt crops in the future. The good news is that some countries are capable of excess after reaching a sustainable state, this will allow their overflow of food to be exported, this overflow powered by the usable cropland data.
