Vegapp is an expert tool for collecting vegetation data in sampling sites. The entry of plant species is facilitated by checklists that can be loaded from a web repository or hand-crafted by users (there are currently few checklists available, see below). Ad-hoc species entries are possible as well. The spatial position of a plot can be retrieved from the Android device and visualized on a map. Settings profiles allow the user to pick relevant data entry fields, set default values to avoid repetitive inputs and to define vegetation layers. Supported export formats include generic text for R or spreadsheets etc., Turboveg-xml and VegX-xml. Vegapp can be used at no cost for non-commercial use.
Species lists have been prepared for the following areas so far: Belgium, Burkina Faso, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hawaii, Italy, New Caledonia, New Zealand, North America, Spain, Switzerland.
The app is available in English and German.
