IT application (smartphone/tablet) for supporting sustainable forest management and decision making, and for raising awareness.
The project will include the design, development and dissemination of a mobile application (both for iPhone and Android devices) to help small forest holders to manage and plan their production and harvesting totally respecting biodiversity and meeting criteria for sustainable forest management. The system is composed by an app working connected to Internet and using the device GPS chip to connect to a server and localize the position. Any interested participant may register, describe and map their forest. Data collected with the app will enter a database, and feature a geographical information system that will provide a large-scale environmental diagnose.
