Technology is a critical enabler for the work we do in integrated land management and ecological assessment and monitoring. By converting data into information and providing real time feedback, it creates greater understanding of the impacts of land management.
Practical tools for data capture in predator control, environmental monitoring of farms and water quality monitoring can engage communities, improve land management and environmental performance.
- Trap.NZ is a major tool in the management of predator control projects across New Zealand. This popular website and app helps communities manage their pest control projects. It uses layered maps and heatmaps to show which traps catch most predators.
- SmartFarms provides a simple and effective system for landowners to collect, store and analyse environmental health information for their farm.
- NZ Water Citizens provides a website for community groups to store, analyse, and present water quality data.
