Obtaining information about jellyfish sightings and stings is crucial for the various scientific research works.

And having a small tool that anyone can carry installed on their mobile phone and that simplifies the task of reporting jellyfish or its effects on people is just what was needed to provide data to science.

Just take the photo to the jellyfish with Medusapp, and when you send it you will also be sending GPS coordinates to make a real-time map of the places where these marine animals are sighted. If you also know the species, the better. But if not, do not worry, scientists will already be responsible for classifying it.

With this application you can also report other types of sightings of marine eventualities, as well as the effects of their stings.

In addition, it includes a guide of small aid in case of sting, and another for the recognition of different species of jellyfish.

Scientific development and scientific-medical data management by Dr. Cesar Bordehore and Dr. Eva S. Fonfría. Multidisciplinary Institute for the Study of the Environment "Ramon Margalef", University of Alicante. Dra. Victoria del Pozo and Dra Mar Fernández Nieto. CIBER CIBERES Respiratory Diseases. Immunoallergy Laboratory, Dep. Of Immunology, Giménez Díaz Foundation Health Research Institute (IIS-FJD).

Developed by Ramón Palacios and Eduardo Blasco as a contribution to citizen science.

The information on jellyfish and first aid comes from the LIFE Cubomed project (www.cubomed.eu), of which Dr. Bordehore participates.

Photographs of jellyfish sightings will be made public through the map, while those of stings will not be made public.
