APPLICATION OF A WEBGIS SYSTEM IN PRECISION FARMING
Keywords:Agricultura de Precisão, WebGIS
Precision farming commonly uses the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) because they present themselves like excellent space management tools. Recent developments in internet technologies have contributed to access, publication, distribution and exploitation of geographic information. The use of GIS distributed on the Internet (Web GIS) is a viable solution in the management of farming systems and in studies on various scales laying GIS functionality available to users through a simple browser, without the need for large investments in relation to software or even specialized technical training. In the present article, we present the features of a Web GIS prototype, developed using free software, which provides geographic information layers that are under the responsibility of Embrapa South Livestock, allowing users to view and conducting research and operations typical spatial analysis of a conventional SIG. As a result presents briefly the features of WebGIS and shows up two applications at different geographical scales in order to explain its multiscale capabilities and their potential use in areas that interact directly or indirectly with the precision agriculture and the management of agricultural space.

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The Ciência e Natura journal is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles.
Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review Articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. The Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding Author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all Co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An Editor must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the Author. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.
Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that Authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected Reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
