bird market monitoring in Indonesia through smart phone technology
Planet Indonesia (United States)
This solution seeks to create a phone application that can easily and inconspicuously be used to collect data in bird markets. Users can open images to identify species and input price, volume, and place of origin data, while they appear to be simply sending a text message. This project was a finalist in the Global US Government Wildlife Crime Tech Challenge (https://www.wildlifecrimetech.org/index).
