Orchard Mapping and Ground-Truthing App

Traditional Orchard Habitat Maps from the People’s Trust for Endangered Species Traditional Orchard Survey can be viewed on the Trust’s website

There are separate maps for Traditional orchards and Marginal sites together with a combined map. Red dots indicate sites that have been ground-truthed and blue dots indicate where ground-truthing is still required.

Members of the public can download a Smart Phone App to allow them to provide more information for the maps, either by ground truthing an existing site, adding a new site or providing information about their own orchard.

More information about volunteering information is available here.

The Traditional Orchard Survey is a good example of how new technology in the form of Smart phone Apps and on-line maps can bring information to the public and enable the public to collect good quality information to further scientific knowledge of natural habitats.
