Not sure if this is the right place for this question, but I couldn't really see a more suitable place for it. I have just been thinking about apps, and so I went to check on the Google Play store to see what was available. Many info apps, but very little for interactivity. And then I thought; 'wouldn't it be great if there was an entomology map app?'.
Basically, an app for entomologists to document the location of the insects they've found so that you can see what's popular in your area on a map and add to it if you find something there that's not documented. It would be amazing for the organisations out there that need to collect data from the public in regards sightings of certain species and also fantastic for new/young entomologists to use to try and find everything that has been documented in their area. It can be archived with facts, images and general information regards each species.
I'm not overly technical so creating such an app is way beyond my skills, but is it do-able? What does everyone think of the idea?
Hello Jon, you can use iNaturalist, or Lepsnap. They have extensive mapping features. Currently, I am working on a webportal (with a different focus) that should also cover the named features at some point.
