The New Forest Cicada Project
The app has landed!
About the App
The app uses the microphone of your smartphone to capture the sound in the
surrounding environment. This sound is analysed on the phone itself to provide
you with immediate feedback on whether the cicada is there or not. In both
cases, if you complete a survey (by tapping on the cicada image in the detector
page), the app will send a report to the project team with location and time of
the survey, and the result of the cicada detection. If the app has detected an
insect call that is similar to a cicada, it will also prompt you to upload a
recording so that it can be analysed in more detail.
The app has been developed in collaboration with
a software development agency for mobile and web.
The development for other platforms has been considered, but has not started yet.

using the client on a different platform.
