As part of our work, we are supporting the development of web-based and mobile applications as promising technological tools to support citizen science. Below, we present those apps that we use in order to support European policies in the selected topics.
|Invasive Alien Species Europe||
The Invasive Alien Species in Europe app enables the general public (amateurs and professionals) to receive and share information about Invasive Alien Species (IAS) in Europe. It provides details about 66 different IAS that are considered to be of interest to the complete European Union. Users can record pictures of possible Invasive Alien Species together with complementary information about their observation.
IASTracker is an app to report possible occurences of Invasive Alien Species, i.e. species that occur outside their usual environment and might cause damage to local biodiversity, agricultural production, human health, etc. The app allows to record species observations using a pre-defined list of some well-known species.
