Mr. Tiiga (Mr. Tree or Forest Tracker) is an app that allows you to collect data about trees in the field. It is built through requirements set by users in Mali in Burkina Faso. With M. Tiiga you can estimate tree densities and count trees in the field, using your smartphone. It processes the data and allows you to save them for further calculations. Walk around a terrain and it will measure its perimeter and calculate the superfice. Count the trees and their species. It will recalculate the density per species.
Mr. Tiiga shows your position on a small map. It uses Openstreetmap to display locations using your phone’s GPS to find out where you are. You can add your position, add trees and calculate statistics. You can select the name of the tree you want to locate. You can make a photo and save it with the tree data. There is a list of trees in the app, from which you can select the name and lookup more details (data directly linked from Wikipedia). The location of all trees can be listed and exported as an Excel sheet. You can zoom out and see the overview of all trees you collected. Every tree is stored with its metadata in the system. You can later make awsome statistics of the trees you collected in the field.
