[App] Project Noah
, , ,
Project Noah is an award-winning mobile application that helps nature lovers discover local wildlife and aspiring citizen scientists contribute to current research projects. Noah stands for networked organisms and habitats. Think of Project Noah as a tool people can use to document and learn about their natural surroundings and as a technology platform research groups can use to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere. Read on to find out how it all works.
The Project Noah application has 3 modes:
Spottings: Grab a photograph of a plant or animal that you find interesting or want to learn more about, select the appropriate category, confirm your location, add some descriptive tags, and submit it. If you need help identifying species, no prob, just select the check box and the community will suggest species IDs
Location-based Field Guide: See what kinds of plants and animals have been spotted near you and learn more about them. Search through a map view, list view, or grid view of most recent spottings all based on your location. You can filter wildlife by categories so you can explore what you’re most interested in.
Field Missions: We work with labs, environmental groups, and various organizations to help them gather important data for their research projects. Missions can range from photographing squirrels or mushrooms to tracking migrating birds or invasive species. Missions allow users to contribute to ongoing research projects, but they can also be for fun and exploration.
With our website, hzzp://projectnoah.org, we continue to build an active community where users can view submissions, help identify species, choose their favorite photos, follow their favorite contributors and discuss their encounters. Users can also make submissions directly from the web.
Our ultimate goal is to build the platform for documenting all the world’s organisms and through doing this we hope to develop an effective way to measure Mother Nature’s pulse. By encouraging the mobile masses to document their encounters with nature, we hope to build a powerful force for data collection and an important educational tool for wildlife awareness and preservation. We hope you’ll support us by joining Project Noah today.
Project Noah user reviews :
I’ve downloaded this wonderful app, but on the home page nothing happens when I click on My Spottings, My Missions, My Patches, or Setting? 0n Missions under local I don’t have an option to choose my location, but I do see 6 missions (Flwrs of Nrth Am.,Fall into Phen., Mitten Crab wtch., fungi of the Am south, Colo corridors prjct. colo sprng crttrs. – none of the othe availabilities or a search bar. there a re a few other bugs too, but at the moment if you could work on those for me, thanx.- Francis Quintana
As an environmental educator I LOVE this app. Send your kids out with their camera phones and get them into nature! However I have had problems when viewing a spotting when I click the image to see it larger I get a different and completely random image from another spotting. This makes it difficult to identify others’ unknown spottings or even to see what they were looking at.
