From the ground to the cloud: forest monitoring in Hutan Aceh

Hutan Aceh is the endangered home of tigers, elephants, orangutans and rhinos. EIA International and local activists from Koalisi Peduli Hutan Aceh (KPHA) protect this home by documenting forest crimes with Open Data Kit. The geo-tagged forms, rich with photos, provide the evidence needed to save habitat.

EIA has a great post on the Hutan Aceh project, and the video below does a great job explaining the project. Visit hutan-aceh.com to view images from the ground.
