Feral Tracker is to be a downloadable application for the iPhone, Android, Windows Phone platforms.
Information you can map in Feral Tracker includes:
FFERAL - Type of Feral animal; Drop down list (Rabbit; Foxes; Camel; Pigs; Cane Toad or Goats
DENSITY - How many feral animals there are
DAMAGE - The damage being caused
IMAGE - Image of habitat

How is it to work?
Take a photo of the location, suggest the number of feral animals and type a message about the location, and then press the send button. That’s all it takes. The report then is to be sent to a website for collation and provided to a government agency .
This then is to be plotted on a website to provide the location and image of the feral population or location. e.g. Rabbit Warrens
You remain anonymous unless, of course, you decide to tell us who you are. The system uses the mobile UDID to identify your handset (there would be no service without this) but the UDID does not give us any information about you.
