About the Client

Planter app enables government authorities and executives to use the power of mobile technologies in tracking their forestry efforts across hot spot locations with exact location accuracy. Planter app takes a photograph of the scene, saves the exact latitude and longitude via GPS and stores the data in database. Further the app features alerts support in case any activity or control check needs to be made with identification of the exact spot.

Planter App is primarily for use in remote areas with extremely limited accesses to internet. Its goal is to help collect images of tree with their locations, while providing a tool for planters to track trees and return to the same trees at a later date.
