A lack of available solutions for protected area management is prevalent across the globe. Non-technical users that support indigenous communities, citizen science, as well numerous small protected areas cannot afford expensive technical support.
CyberTracker offers a mobile data capture and data visualization solution for nontechnical users, including indigenous communities, citizen science, scientific research, and protected area management.
The CyberTracker Icon User Interface was originally designed for expert indigenous trackers who cannot read or write. This was a ground-breaking innovation for which CyberTracker was awarded the 1998 Rolex Award for Enterprise. There is a critical shortage of technical skills in nature conservation and especially in support of indigenous communities. CyberTracker Online will enable users with no technical skills to customize a mobile data capture application to collect complex biodiversity and socio-economic data and visualize data in maps and tables.
Current plans are to develop a new CyberTracker Online solution that will consolidate key, proven features of CyberTracker, and simplified for nontechnical users to support indigenous communities, citizen science, as well numerous small protected areas that cannot afford expensive technical support. CyberTracker Online will be available worldwide.
