Avenza Maps™ works 100% offline. Locate yourself using only GPS. Collect data in remote areas without needing to rely on a network connection.
Use your own custom maps created with your own GIS data. You can import maps in many formats including PDF, GeoTIFF and JPG.
Collect data and organize into custom schemas when out in the field. Export and share data to your teams to provide the most up-to-date sources.
Integrating technology into conservation efforts has made it easier for researchers to monitor threatened species and biodiversity. The challenge is to understand the data that is being collected to better monitor the environment and make more informed decisions. The Avenza Maps platform allows conservation teams to record data, take notes and include photos on offline maps a simple task. The cost-effective solution enables you to align your mapping and
field data collection needs with your existing enterprise organizational needs.
The flexibility of our mobile app allows you to import custom maps created by your team. Multiple maps of an area can be grouped as a collection for seamless browsing. When away from network coverage, maps can be used completely offline, only relying on GPS to precisely locate yourself and to collect points of data in the field. Create custom field collection schemas to take inventory of conservation areas, parks, and other important points of interest. The app allows you to export data and upload it to your own network or a cloud storage solution.
In a remote jungle or in an urban green space, accurate data collection and ease of use are of high priority. The Avenza Maps platform provides your team with a more organized and managed way to use maps on the ground and have data immediately available for improved environmental monitoring.
“Globally, there are well over 41,000 species listed as endangered. The Tasmanian devil and the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle -- both of which are not found anywhere else in the world outside of zoos -- share the unfortunate designation of ‘endangered’ as well. Located on the island of Tasmania, which is the southern-most state of Australia, both species share a unique biodiversity that supports a mix of habitats for endangered plants such as the Grassland Paper-daisy, endemic species like the Ptunarra brown butterfly, and other rare and endangered marsupials and birds distinct to Tasmania. With declining numbers of certain flora and fauna, groups such as the Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) are working to ensure a sustainable future for a threatened and unique ecosystem.”
“Huntdata’s motto has always been, ‘Where to Hunt’ because so often both professional and amateur hunters can lose valuable time in areas where they’re more likely to see other hunters than animals. With the technology today, there’s no reason to get lost. Paper maps and data are always helpful, but with the combination of apps like Avenza’s PDF Maps app, the chances of finding a herd during any given time of the year as well as understanding public and private property boundaries can make the experience worthwhile.”
Guyra Paraguay’s mission is to promote and coordinate actions for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, with an emphasis on bird conservation. Their biggest challenge was to find an application for both Android and iOS, with a friendly interface, that would not require an internet connection to be used in remote areas like in our conservation unit. On top of this, taking into account the limited resources available to generate interactive maps.
We got a chance to interview Tatiana Galluppi Selich, an Environmental Engineer at Guyra Paraguay, to talk about using Avenza Maps in conservation.
