Caterpillars Count is an application focused on collecting data about insect populations through crowdsourcing. In this project we will expand upon the existing website and mobile app by developing an iOS app, implementing quality-control on data entries, and adding new data visualization options to the website.
Scientists are concerned that climate change is affecting the life cycles of birds and the insects they eat in different ways. There are tons of bird watching apps and migration data, but hardly anything for tracking bird food. This app aims to give amateur scientists the means to collect and submit such data so that we may better understand how we are affecting the lives of birds.
