Conservation management requires reliable information to assess whether or not implemented strategies are effective. This may include information on the changing status of biodiversity that are targets of conservation actions over space and time.
The SMART Survey plug-in, previously known as Ecological Records plug-in, facilitates the collection, management, mapping, and analysis of accurate species and habitat survey data. This plug-in allows configurable collection of survey data based on existing survey design categories and attributes, so you will be able to develop your own survey design templates and data models to suit your data collection needs. With SMART Survey, these can then be coupled to actual survey plans and field missions during which validated ecological monitoring data is collected.
The SMART Survey plug-in is available for download through SMART Desktop by selecting File and install new plug-ins.
