Abstract/Artist Statement

The Invasive Species Phone App is a Native Android 4.0 application that focuses on allowing users to report the location of invasive plant species. It will initially be targeted for the Mokelumne River but will eventually be expanded to support nationwide reporting. This application was created for the Lower Mokelumne River Watershed Stewardship to be a free application for use by the general public, as well as by its members. A user will be able to create a report by scrolling through photos of know invasive plant species and taking a picture of the plant they would like to report. This will cause the creation of a text file with the GPS location of the phone and the bearing that the phone was facing when the picture was taken. The text file along with the picture will be sent via email to Lower Mokelumne River Watershed Stewardship where they will determine if the plant is an invasive species, or if it should be reported as an unlisted plant. In addition to the reporting functionality, the app also allows the user to visit the Lower Mokelumne River Watershed Stewardship website to look up important information about the watershed. The app was developed on the Android Development Kit using API Rev. 14 for Android 4.0, provided by Google.
