Eco:Map? What's that?

  • The Situation: You are a biologist standing in open terrain and mapping species. It is windy. You are fighting with your data sheet and the topographic map. Back in the office you have yet to digitalise the data on your computer.
    It is unnerving.
  • The Fantasy: Wouldn't it be nice to have something in your pocket which knows the scientific names? Something that secures the locality automatically? Something that can conveniently transmit the collected data to your computer?
    Yes, this would be nice, you sigh?!
  • The Solution: And here you are! With Eco:Map a newly developed software for your iPad®, iPhone® or iPod® you have - depending on your database - access to more than 2.34 million scientific names and synonyms. Locations are identified by GPS, species are administered separately according to field trips, data is exported browser-based or via e-mail or via iTunes®.
