Inspiration

  • Commercial fisherman must report all incidental mortalities and injuries of marine mammals that have occurred as a result of commercial fishing operations
  • These reports need to be submitted within 48 hours of the incident happening
  • A mobile application version of this form would allow fishermen to log these reports immediately after they happen and then submit them when there is Internet access

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We are proud of having a mobile application that is easy to use and a way to easily view form submissions on a map based on the location of each report.

What I learned

We learned how to use the Ionic framework to build native mobile applications using Javascript and also to create maps using D3.js.

What's next for Marine Mammal Authorization Program

Work with government agencies to turn this into an actual application that they can use to collect information.
