Cultivated out of my masters thesis at the University of Redlands, Whale mAPP is a GIS-based citizen science project funded by the California Coastal Commission.
Whale mAPP 3.4.4 for Android is currently available for beta testing.
How it Works:
By sharing your sightings, you will contribute to important research efforts to help conserve these species. All data is freely available to researchers, managers, educators, and the public.
Simplified data collection easy enough for both expert and public users without compromising integrity of data.
Geo-aware design provides you with a unique list of species, specific to your location.
Close to the shore or the middle of the ocean, Whale mAPP has you covered! You don’t even need cell service or internet connections to record trips. Just sync when you are back home.
Back at home, view maps of your own trips and share with others.
Whale mAPP is built on top of Esri software and base maps. It is funded and supported by:
