eyeC for iOS

By JoyImaging Free

Developer's Description

eyeC is designed for people who are interested in observing birds and mammals. You should consider eyeC: 1. If you want to keep a record of your wildlife observations, automatically grouped into life lists, trip summaries, and daily summaries. 2. If you want to participate in creating and using a readily available on-line database of wildlife observations. 3. If you want to find nearby parks and wildlife refuges, get driving directions and find out what other people have seen nearby. 4. If you want one wildlife application that will work worldwide. 5. If you want to have access to birding checklists for 50 US states, 13 Canadian provinces and territories, 242 countries and 11 continental areas and, currently, a mammal checklist for North America. 6. If you would find it useful to have one 'Tap' access to Wikipedia or Google to find information about a bird, mammal, park, or wildlife refuge. 7. If you believe Apple's iAD is an acceptable alternative to paying for an application. You should consider other facilities: 1. If you are primarily looking for a wildlife identification aid, other than checklists and links to Wikipedia and Google. 2. If you are looking for images or sounds of wildlife. Some details: 1. Uses the IOC World Bird Names (Version 2.4) for world wide coverage. 2. Currently, uses the Smithsonian North American mammals checklist. 3. Uses the iPhone's GPS to accurately locate observations. 4. Uses Google Maps to display hotspots and, when possible, translate GPS locations into postal addresses. 5. Uses caching and store and forward. This means your observations will be accurately recorded and shared even if you are not connected to the Internet when you make them. 6. Uses iOS 4 multi-tasking to provide links to Google search, Google Directions, and Wikepidia. 7. We have add many features to make eyeC very easy to use, such as context sensitive help for screens, powerful disambiguation to aid in entry, consistent and accurate feedback, very fast response time, etc.

What's new in version 3

Version 3 of eyeC incorporates sightings hosted on the Avian Knowledge Network. These cover the 50 US states, 14 Canadian provinces and territories, and 132 other countries and areas. The sightings represent about about 28 million observations at about 442,000 different locations. eyeC organizes this data to provide assistance in both the location and identification of birds. At the one extreme it will show you the 14 locations where the California Condor has been reported. At the other extreme it will show the locations where the over 441,000 sightings of the American Robin have been reported in the United States. It will summarize the relative frequency of each species. For example, near the Everglades National Park about 42 percent of the vultures are Black Vultures. At Acadia National Park 100 percent of the vultures are Turkey Vultures. eyeC will also now generate an empirical birding checklist for any location. The user can specify the center and extent of the area. The check lists are grouped by generally accepted categories and include information on the relative frequency of occurrence. In addition, checklists provide easy access to detail information about each species, including the scientific name, taxonomy, conservation status, and one click access to Wikipedia or Google Search. Empirical checklists can also be generated for parks and wildlife refuges.
