For an ecologist, hard data is the most important thing they can have. Unfortunately, whether you’re establishing the number of ant species in a forest transect, or tracking how global warming affects fish populations on coral reefs, the technology for collecting that data hasn’t advanced in centuries.
Easy Ecological Surveyor aims to eliminate the wasted time and errors inherent in collecting data with pen and paper and then manually entering it into spreadsheets for processing.
The app allows custom surveys to be created and deployed to multiple iPads. Survey data is then collected through the simple and efficient user interface and synchronised to a central server.
This tabulated data can then be simply exported in a .CSV file ready for processing!
Put a waterproof housing on an iPad and suddenly there's no need for dive slates! The interface is designed to be easy to read and use, even at the bottom of the ocean.
