Kiwi Coast has created a mobile app to take the hassle out of Northland’s Annual Kiwi Call Count Survey.
The app mimics the Department of Conservation’s (DOC) official ‘Kiwi Call Card’ so you can use your phone to record all the required information while you listen at your site.
Additional features include on-the-spot date and time stamps and automatic GPS location recording. You can also record a kiwi call as you hear it – taking the uncertainty out of the odd calls sometimes heard – especially from juvenile kiwi finding their voices for the first time!
After completing a night’s listening, your data is summarised and can then be exported to yourself in the official DOC excel spreadsheet for checking – no more laborious data entry!
Once checked, you can then forward your data sheet on to your local Kiwi Call Count Coordinator for collation, who can then submit it to DOC for inclusion in the Annual Call Count Survey for Northland.
The App has been specifically designed for the Northland Kiwi Call Count Survey and is available free for groups and projects linked into Kiwi Coast.
App users need to be approved by an administrator before full access can be granted.
