2es jornades BioBlitz Catalunya 2012 - ZamiaDroid

  1. 1. ZamiaDroid
  2. 2. ZamiaDroidField registration of biological datausing mobile devices
  3. 3. Main idea
  4. 4. GoalsMinimize information support systems Export dataSave time (digitalization process)Easy and automatic creation of digital dataEasy connection to Database servers a) Safe storage Database Database b) Access to published information Consult data Field Field Mobile device Mobile device (with ZamiaDroid ) Register data
  5. 5. Main concepts Registering observations with mobile devices Default data Custom data  Geo-location (degrees | UTM)  Fields that can be  Timestamp (date + time) defined by user  Altitude Projects
  6. 6. Main concepts Registering observations with mobile devices Default data Custom data  Geo-location (degrees |  Fields that can be UTM) defined by user  Timestamp (date + time)  Altitude Projects
  7. 7. Project Definition (forms)Projects creation using forms Free field (text, numerical o boolean) Photo field Sub-project field Predefined or complex field (with a list of items) Thesaurus field
  8. 8. Thesaurus List of words grouped by similarity  Loading taxonomical thesarus (list of species)  Strenghts: − Saves typing time − Avoids typo errors − Allows synonyms checking
  9. 9. Sub-Project Fields (relevé) Project i.e. Relevé Field1 Field2 Sub-Project Field (new list of fields) Locality Area Field A Field B Field C Taxon Sureness Photo Taxon Sureness Photo Pancratium maritimun OK img_23123.jpg Locality Area relevéFiele Plantago crassifolia OK null Ammophila arenaria Ok img_21312.jpgBarcelona 25 m² 2011_05_20-12:00:01Barcelona 25m2 2011_05_20-12:20:01Barcelona 25m2 2011_05_20-12:25:01 Taxon Sureness Photo Pancratium maritimun OK img_23123.jpg Plantago crassifolia OK null
  10. 10. Database connection1) Biodiversity data bank of Catalonia(BDBC)2) Iberian and Macaronesian VegationInformation System (SIVIM) Access to biological records and photos for concrete species Access to a set of species or plant communities for a concrete location
  11. 11. Citation Management Features: Edit, order, select, export, remove and filter citations Filter by:FieldLocation (UTM, lat/long)DateTaxon
  12. 12. Data export TAB files (Excel / Calc)  GIS (KML and shapeFiles) Fagus and Quercus (B-Vegana)  Fagus provides an efficient method to enter floristic citations.  Quercus is oriented to the creation and management of relevés.
  13. 13. Observations MapShow observations using googleMaps − Observation info, scale, location and walking direction − Observation creation on the map − Iberian UTM grid and Database connection − Record of GPS tracks
  14. 14. More features Repository project  Multilingual InterfaceAccesss to an on-line server  Catalan, Spanish, that contains pre-defined projects English and French  Projects and On-line Thesaurus observationsCapability to download management thesaurus from:  Modification and  Biodiversity data bank of removal Catalonia or  Iberian Macaronesian  Image gallery with Vegation Information System observations photos
  15. 15. ZamiaDroid context: B-VegAna Internet Quercus Quercus Vegetation relevés Vegetation relevés Welwitschia group Ginkgo Ginkgo Yucca Yucca ZamiaDroid ZamiaDroid Floristic citations Floristic citations Database Fagus FagusB-VegAna (Vegetation edition and Analysis):An integrated software package oriented towards the storage, management and analysis ofecological data. The package consists of several free applications, which can be run independently:-2 data management modules (Quercus and Fagus)-1 statistical module (Ginkgo)-1 mapping module (Yucca)-1 module for mobile devices (ZamiaDroid)
  16. 16. ZamiaDroid / Android Free software or openSourceZamiaDroid is openSource software, everybody can use it in a free way, study it and adapt it to their own needs. Changes made by others can help everybody, derivative work can be added to improve this software. Android  Mobile operating system  Open Source  High growth during last 4 years  Fast development  Android Market
