Barrier Tracker app will be translated into 9 languages
The AMBER project has developed a smartphone application under the Citizen Science Programme called AMBER Barrier Tracker. With this free mobile app, participants will be able to quickly upload new river barriers into the general Atlas Barrier database and access the information in the Citizen Science portal.
Even though the app is already being used by AMBER members in the Field Validation for WP1, Creation of a European Barrier Atlas, and some water managers and river specialists, the official release to the public will be only during World Fish Migration Day 21 April 2018.
Different members of the AMBER are currently working on the translation of the app from English into
Danish, Dutch, French, German, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Welsh. This will make it easier for citizen scientist volunteers to record and report their local rivers.
