Offline Mobile Map App

Our Offline Mobile Map App creates data maps in the field, using geo-located map markers supporting colour shading, text, numerical (decimal) data and images. Editable worksheets allowing multiple data inputs for any location are provided in the app as an optional feature.

The map image with location markers and visible data inputs can be downloaded for direct insertion in a document, printing, or the creation of overlays and further processing.

Sand Dune Investigations

These investigations cover the abiotic variables and distribution and abundance of plant species from the pioneer zone to climax community. The impact of human activity can also be studied, together with the variations in biodiversity between managed and unmanaged dunes, and the effectiveness of dune management schemes. Contrasts may be drawn with the protected sand dunes at the nearby Llobregat Delta Nature Reserve.
