EcoSystem Indicator Partnership App

Project Partners - Gulf of Maine Council on the Marine Environment, EcoSystem Indicator Partnership 

I can’t say enough about how pleased we are with the smartphone app developed by Tesera. We came to them with a pretty confused idea about what we wanted and were able to work with Tesera to develop an app that fulfills our needs and looks and feels very professional.

The Challenge

The Gulf of Maine Council on the Marine Environment, EcoSystem Indicator Partnership (ESIP) was looking for a mobile application to allow visitors to share photos and experiences that they had while touring the area. Overtime these photos could be used to monitor environmental changes in the area.

The Solution

A mobile App that allows users to upload geo-referenced and time stamped images and comments from sites within the Gulf of Maine to an on-line ESIP photo library. This application needed to work on a variety of mobile devices. The App is designed with the flexibility to easily scale and grow as monitoring requirements evolve and expand.

The Result

The Result was a robust and simple to use app that works on Android and iOS devices. The app links users in the Gulf of Maine and associated watersheds with information on local monitoring sites in the vicinity. Users can become watershed monitors and environmental stewards by submitting photos and comments on specific locations from across the region.
