The development of web and mobile applications allows ERMES stakeholders to collect in-situ data, and easily access and explore data products for agriculture monitoring and decision making processes.
A first prototype for the ERMES Smart-App is available at this link.
Local farmers can, for example, use it to report different types of observations. These include specific information (e.g., crop information, pesticides used, sewing practices) about their own parcels and free form information using free text accompanied with an in-situ taken illustrative picture. The smart app benefits from a minimal, user-friendly interface, which makes reporting field observations by non-technical end users feasible.
Next releases of the ERMES smart app will further extend the set of offered functionalities, and continue to strive for user friendliness.
At this page you find a short manual that explains the use of the ERMES smart-App and local Geo-portal ( Spanish and Italian version) .
