Analyzing Volunteer Geographic Information Accuracy for Research
Track: ArcGIS for Mobile Developers
Authors: Kelsi Davis, Michael Schwind
We are performing a research project developing a mobile phone app to map feral cats and analyze VGI output accuracy. The app uses iOS and Android Esri SDK. The Esri location service pinpoints where users report a feral cat and projects that onto a map.The SDK allows us to incorporate a Geofencing tool so users can select an area of interest. ArcServer manages the data. This project is useful to convey that GIS is an invaluable tool, especially in VGI collection and spatial analysis in research.
