A Mobile Appilcation and Integrated Web Interface for recording Dragonflies

Through this project the West Wales biodiversity Information Centre (WWBIC) aim to increase the amount and involvement in biological recording in Pembrokeshire, by creating an integrated mobile recording application and website interface and making this available to volunteer recorders. Funding will assist development of an application to send dragonfly records captured by field recorders to the database at the WWBIC, using a cellular network or a wireless broadband connection. The integrated web mapping interface will allow records to be viewed and verified by experts. Recorders and volunteers will use a mobile device with built in GPS on which sits an application tailored to recording dragonflies. Biological records will be entered directly onto a map and into a user friendly data entry interface, which stores and uploads the records to the WWBIC database when a signal is available. Once complete this project should pave the way for the development for other species groups and also allow other organisations or groups to share the information captured.

Project Total Cost: £8,195.00

Grant Awarded: £3,968.00
