The Citizen Science application "Roadkill" allows you to add outdoor roadkill sightings to the database of the Project by the University of natural resources and life sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria. The Project Roadkill is powered by SPOTTERON, a system for citizen science applications on smartphones.
The app is an important asset while travelling roads or hiking in nature or in urban areas to help with the situation and protect nature and the environment. By reporting your roadkills findings, you are helping by providing streamlined data for the scientific analysis of the current situation regarding the topic. With your entries, the science team then can identify hotspots at which roadkill occur regulary and adress those issues by e.g. building tunnels for migrating toads and frogs, or construct wildlife bridges over roads in cooperation with NGOs and local authorities.
Roadkill | SPOTTERON is designed for outdoor use and utilizes OpenStreetMap and is designed for modern smartphones. You can register your own SPOTTERON User within the app and start adding roadkill spots to the database.
