field data collection

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.

A platform for
citizen science

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.
