About this app


Obsmapp is the nature enthusiast's digital notebook. With Obsmapp you can submit all your nature observations directly from the field. All observations are automatically linked to the current time and GPS location. After your field trip you can upload your sightings to one of the linked portals. This is possible from the field by using the internet connection of your device, but also from your home WIFI network.
ObsMapp is available in the languages:

- No internet access needed in the field
- Location of the observation can be changed using Openstreetmaps (completely offline) or Google Maps (online)
- For uploading your observations an account for waarneming.nl, waarnemingen.be or observado.org is needed
- After uploading you will recieve an email with the results and on which site your observations will be visible

Extra options:
- View other's recent observations near your location.
- Download multimedia (pictures and sound recordings) to help you identify species
- Upload pictures together with your observations
- Create your own species lists

- All bird species of the world included and frequently updated
- Pick from an ever growing database of >450.000 (sub)species

- Join the community and get useful feedback from experts on your sightings

ObsMapp collects location data to enable 'Route' when explicitly chosen by the user, and then even when the app is closed or not in use.
In order to use the Wear-app 'ObsWatch' you MUST also install the phone-app ObsMapp, and enable the use of ObsWatch in the settings of the phone version!

This has been a great app for the past years, at least if it works. Since the last update (a few weeks ago), it crashes/stops on startup, while it should be compatible with my device. This means I cannot use it anymore. Please correct so that I can enjoy using this app again. Hi Observation International, the crashing was apparently related to the installation of the update. I removed the app and reinstalled from scratch and the issue is fixed. Only issue if you have to start from scratch: you have to download all data (species files) again, so best to install while on wifi.

Obsmapp enables a direct identification option through the internet! With this facility it is not needed to install separate apps for which up-to-date versions are needed. Even with my Android 4.4 automated determination is now possible if a mobile connection is available; it consumes only a little of my bundle. Let it work smoothly this way for the 5th star. Chapeau!
