Tools for the citizen science revolution

Ease of data capture

Easily capture data from users via PC, the web, smartphones or bulk import from other systems or previous surveys and events. Our mobile platform even works flawlessly in the outback or without any mobile reception.

Leverage the crowd

Tap into the sheer powerful force that is citizen science by gathering high quality data from the masses and effectively multiplying your resources. Our army of NatureMappers are ready to contribute to your project.

Educate and inspire

Transfer knowledge and expertise from your project leaders to the community via real time discussion and passionate community participation.

Extensible security model

Intelligently protect the locations of sensitive species while empowering custodians with the information they need to see. Our security model gives you the flexibility to grant the required permissions within your project.

Made for the environment

Rich visual mapping

Generate powerful species distribution maps for ease of exploration and visual analysis. Define your own places and special areas of interest using our polygon tool or by importing your existing shape files.

Trusted ID workflow

Our proven workflow system ensures that newly received, unverified records are put through their paces by your own trusted subject matter experts in order to be considered verified and accurate.

Taxonomy Management

Take full control of your project's taxonomy with the ability to import, export and fully manage your own multi-level species hierarchy and synonym set. Setup your own special fields and questions for particular categories of species so your users are prompted to supply additional information when required.

Notifications and alerts

Make sure the right people know when important records are received and keep your team in the loop with what's happening and what they're most interested in keeping an eye on.

Robust and scalable

Social media integration

Enable automatic social media integration with facebook and twitter to engage your audience and continually increase community awareness of your mission.

Export and analyse

Export and analyse the results of your project or initiative in Microsoft Excel, PDF or our ready to go reporting suite. Uncover powerful trends, biodiverty hotspots and outliers.

Third party integration

Leverage our extensive integration with the CSIRO Atlas of Living Australia as well as our web service API to easily integrate with your other systems.

Securely cloud hosted

NatureMapr is a ready to go software as a service cloud platform certified for the secure storage of government data. We back up your data daily, on shore, in Australia.

What our customers say

Senior Conservation Officer, Environment and Planning Directorate, ACT Government
Canberra Nature Map (CNM) has transformed the way that wildlife information is collected, reported and accessed across the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). In doing so it has significantly increased our understanding of wildlife distribution and abundance and has informed and changed daily land management practice. It is having a revolutionary impact in terms of our understanding and management actions. I strongly endorse the adoption of the programming tools and flexibility that has driven CNM to other regions, wildlife of interest or citizen science projects.

Dr Michael Mulvaney - Senior Conservation Officer, Environment and Planning Directorate, ACT Government

Koala Count Coordinator, National Parks Association of NSW
We'd like to give a big-shout out to our software developers NatureMapr, who have just received the 2015 ACT Landcare People’s Choice Award. Aaron Clausen and his team put in a massive effort to get our new streamlined and slick Koala Count website and app up and running. We've been blown away by their commitment and tireless efforts. We highly recommend NatureMapr as a platform for any other budding citizen science projects out there.

Dr Helen Smith - Koala Count Coordinator, National Parks Association of NSW
