• Record details of the pollinating insects on your chosen plants
• Plot these results to see which of your plants is the most popular
• Upload the data to our central database
The data you gather, along with the photos you take, will be used in a research project being undertaken by the University of Sussex. The Earthwatch Institute in association with Waitrose and The Crown Estate is facilitating this research. So what are you waiting for? Bee-friend your garden!
WildImage can be used either as a floor plan for museums and other interior trails or can contain flow-diagrams or images that contain clickable Designated Interest Points. These interest points contain text, images, audio, video and multi-choice questions relating to the object. Users of WildImage can also complete a dedicated recording form to upload their own data to the WK Portal.
Using the online creation tool simply load up your map and add media such as text, images, audio, video and quiz questions to your Designated Interest Points (DIPs).
Download your maps to your Android phone or tablet and use the GPS marker to guide you around your trail. WildMap can be used with a live internet connection or can be used offline. In addition to providing DIPs you can also record your own Personal Interest Points (PIPs) as you walk around the destination.
You can also upload, store and visualise your PIP information as reports, charts and maps which can be kept private, or shared with the community as open projects.
Decide where you want to go, then download the relevant walk (we recommend you do this before your visit). Once there, activate the App then use your phone’s GPS to help guide you round the route shown.
As you travel along the route select the information points as you come to them, to learn more about the site’s history and wildlife, or to participate in an activity.
Fresh water is essential for sustaining all life while freshwater ecosystems provide fundamental benefits for people and nature. Yet this crucial resource is very limited and can be easily degraded. As the world’s population grows, ongoing urban expansion and agricultural intensification will increase the pressure on this resource.
To successfully manage the world’s fresh water, we need to improve our understanding of how water quality varies across landscapes and over time, yet surprisingly little data are available. Such information is difficult and time consuming for scientists to gather, which is where you come in. With your help we can vastly increase the amount of data to fill gaps in our knowledge across the globe.
The information that you will help collect will directly inform fresh water policy and practice, meaning that the world’s vital water resources are better understood and conserved. You will be joining a network of over 20 research projects that are being facilitated by Earthwatch with the support of the HSBC Water Programme.
Thanks for your help!
Uploaded records can be, visualised via reports, charts and maps and can be kept private, or shared with the community.
WildKnowledge produce a range of WildKeys so check them out..if there is an area we haven’t covered (or you think you can do better!) download the WildKey UGC app which will enable you to make your own keys (if your key isgood we may even make it into an app and share the revenue with you)

you on a tour of selected interest points. This churchyard not only
contains a wealth of memorials and history; it is also managed to
create an oasis for wildlife, so choose from a History, Wildlife or
Flora Trail or simply take the Combined Trail to access information on
all three areas! Download trails to your iPhone and follow the GPS
marker to hotspots that will reveal pictures, text and quiz questions.
As you wander around you don’t need to worry about your phone signal
as trails can be downloaded before you set off on your exploration.
Create recording forms using 20 different data-gathering options including:
• Drop down lists
• Note taking facility
• Linking to device functions(GPS,camera,audio,date)
• Quiz questions
Download your forms to your phone* and use anywhere. WildForm can be used with a live internet connection or can be used offline, with any saved information being uploaded when you have a connection again.
Take advantage of the multifunctional features of your phone, such as GPS, camera and microphone, to gather much more interesting information than just plain text.
Uploaded data can be visualised as maps, charts and reports and can be kept private, or shared with the community as open projects. If your ideas are really good we may partner with you and turn your WildProject into a stand alone app.
Use the creation tool on the WildKnowledge portal to create your own keys or use those that are available as open projects.
Download your keys to your phone* and use anywhere. WildKey can be used with a live internet connection or can be used offline, with any saved information being uploaded when you have a connection again.
WildKey lets you answer questions at the point of inspiration and can be a great teaching aid as well as a bit of fun.
