Entry ID: CyberTracker

Summary
Abstract: CyberTracker is a software tool that allows users to collect field data with handheld computers or PDAs. It can also be used to create digital field guides because it allows rich content to be displayed in conjunction with data capture fields.

The CyberTracker Species Identification Filter consists of a sequence of screens each with a checklist of characteristic features of a species. Once data has been filtered it can be Exported to Microsoft Excel, Comma Seperated Values, XML or HTML formats. Creating data elements for each screen automatically creates a structured database. Cybertracker provides some templates.

CyberTracker software can be used on smart phones and handheld computers with GPS to record observations. The design allows users to display icons, text or both, which makes data collection faster. It also allows field data collection by non-literate users and school children. CyberTracker Conservation is a non-profit organization whose vision is to promote the development of a worldwide environmental monitoring network.

Releasing the CyberTracker software free is the most efficient way to achieve our vision. Working on a non-profit basis means that we depend on donor funding. It is therefore important that we keep track of conservation projects using CyberTracker.

We request that users send us a short summary of their projects. Projects that have websites should please provide us with links to these sites, and add links to www.cybertracker.org. All publications and publicity materials that result from data collected with the CyberTracker software should acknowledge the use of CyberTracker, with a clear reference to www.cybertracker.org.

Projects using their own Application brand names should clearly state that it is "a CyberTracker Application" together with the CyberTracker logo and a clear reference to www.cybertracker.org.

Under this agreement, it is understood that the CyberTracker software is free for conservation and humanitarian use, and that users will submit details of their projects to CyberTracker for reporting purposes.

Users are welcome to use CyberTracker for commercial applications, but commercial users should please make a donation to CyberTracker Conservation. Please contact: louis@cybertracker.org.
