The Prey Lang app is a tool to systematize data collected by the forest monitors and it uses their knowledge and capacity.
This forest monitoring tool, is created with the collaboration of Prey Lang Community Network (PLCN) members in Cambodia, and according to their needs for forest patrolling. It is available for download from anyone, however only registered devices have the possibility to submit the recorded data in our database. Unregistered users will only be able to test on phone level and they will not be able to generate any report from our server. (Password request as you launch the app can be skipped). The data is compiled on both the larger
forest patrols as well as individual day-to-day trips to the forests.
By using forest patrols and a smartphone app, the PLCN can geo-reference, document, and immediately upload information about forest health, illegal logging and wildlife poaching to a centralised database that can be accessed anywhere in the world. The network has become the primary source of reliable on-the-ground data about the Prey Lang forest.
