As an ecologist, time is precious and never more so than in ‘survey season’. Managing multiple projects is hard enough.  But couple that with late night surveys that blend into early morning surveys and then add to that managing all your data and writing reports – it’s exhausting and time consuming.  You need a no-fuss solution that helps you to collect accurate data and cuts out time wasted on tasks like transcribing data from paper forms.

Pen and paper is still often the go to method of data collection for ecologists, but with that comes some unavoidable challenges.

You know better than most that locations, especially polygons, are hard to map in the field on paper.  Mandatory fields sometimes get missed. Back in the office, countless hours are spent transcribing data from paper to digital format and making sure photos are linked to records. There has to be a more efficient way.
