Taiwan: SuperGeo assisted Taiwan Endemic Species Research Institute in developing Taiwan Biodiversity Network (TBN). The Institute manages ecological restoration and promotes the concept of biodiversity to maintain the sustainable development for species.
According to the company’s press statement, growing population has directly influenced various species of flora and fauna. Powered by SuperWebGIS, the TBN aims to encourage people to use its application service, popularise the concept of biodiversity widely and effectively collect information of species in Taiwan. Through accessing TBN, users can freely upload the species photos taken by them. Consequently, users can know the diverse creatures while sharing information online.
In order to preserve biodiversity and emphasize its importance in our daily life, the APP, i35, is designed for mobile users to gather the precious information of Taiwan species and share the survey results on TBN themselves more easily. Supporting both Android 2.3 and iOS 4.0, i35 allows users to obtain biological information and upload species photos anytime and anywhere.
Integrating with GPS and GIS technologies, i35 brings convenience to users when uploading photos with coordinate information. Meanwhile, users can query biological information found and recorded nearby the specific location all the time rather than carrying illustrated handbooks. The biodiversity can thus be surveyed and conserved better with GIS technology with the smart app.
