One of these is to enable users to download the track data in formats that simplify data import to other tools, such as mapping software (e.g. ArcGIS) or tabular analysis software (e.g. Excel spreadsheets), so that scientists and citizens alike can derive new findings and develop new information products based on the enviroCar data.

No sooner said than done, we developed and now publicly release two new export formats, shapefile and CSV! (more…)

In the second part of the project (July and August), I will carry out the actual realization, which will culminate in the Gatherer app. I will elaborate on both. (more…)
