Beside the conservation of ecological networks the monitoring of these ecological sensitive areas is an important working area. At the moment there is a lake on available datasets for the prediction of which wildlife species are using the exiting ecological network and to identify areas with connectivity deficits.
On goal of the developed Ecological Network Application (ENA) is to generate data for monitoring purpose by citizens which are controlled and evaluated by wildlife ecologies.
The BETA version of ENA is now available for free on the Google Play store. Currently twelve different wildlife species which are relevant for the monitoring of ecological networks are supported. Furthermore the documentation of land use by taking standardized images is supported. A further functionality is the reporting of landscape elements with barrier effect. The mapping can by spatially restricted for single campaigns to reduce the data volume of the offline cache. Furthermore the mapping can be spatially restricted for single Points of Interest (POI) or transects. Navigation to the POI or along a specific transect is supported.
Eine detaillierte Beschreibung der Funktionalitäten finden Sie im Google Play Store .
On the backend the configuration of mapping campaigns is supported. Based on this functionality we have the possibility to adapted specific mapping campaigns for different target groups (e.g. (for example elementary school | hunting association). After uploading the mapped data and an expert validation procedure the data are available in the portal. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested and need the configuration of a specific campaign.
