Flocktracker is a content-agnostic platform that aims to democratize field data collection. We provide an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-manage, ad-hoc, cloud-based field data gathering method, leveraging smartphone technology and designed to generate valuable insights in a low cost, and low hassle, way.
The technology enables a range of users, from citizens to academics to businesses, to collect highly heterogeneous field data, and share their projects. The platform enables individuals to explore and participate to others projects.
Heterogeneous, high resolution field data can be rapidly collected, transmitted, fused, and validated almost simultaneously. For example, passenger counts can be combined with on-board surveys, which can be precisely matched with time and place stamps and transmitted remotely to databases.
