WILDTHING-EEIKO crowdsourcing platform application for alien species control
Summary:
A Spanish company, beneficiary of the SME Instrument, is about to deploy into the market WILDTHING, a citizen collaboration-based multiplatform application for the control of Invasive Alien Flora Species. Following 1143/2014 regulation, it allows citizen participation and the validation by civil servants. The company is looking for partners able to carry out pilot tests with some of their customers, either public or private, under a research cooperation agreement.
Description:
WILDTHING is a Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technology based web platform with two different interfaces:
-Input interface: to inform citizens and to create awareness of the issue, as well as to report the new location of invasive alien species. Based on citizen participation and expert verification on a crowdsourcing basis, this approach is a disruptive innovation in this ecological area of. The platform citizens can use free. To became a new member with the email address is enough. The new locations need a photo, one or more, to put in this interface. This photo is used by the experts to verify the information. If there is a doubt, the experts can contact the people to clarify. After verification, the new locations will be seen on EEIKO website. All the people can see the new locations and to learn with the other data. This database can be shared with other biodiversity platforms, DAISIE, GBIF or similar.
- Output interface: this interface has been designed to use by environmental authority (municipalities, protected natural areas, regional environmental departments, ministry). It is used:
· to carry out invasives alien species control projects,
· keeping the atlas of invasive alien species up to date,
· to prevention the invasion,
· to follow the results of the control invasive actions included
the following of the restoration of the damaged ecosystems,
· to have an early detection notifications,
· to determinate emergency measures and rapid eradication at
an early stage of invasions,
· to have a history with the action, atlas, and evolution of
invasive species.
· To do inquiries and multiple inquiries to obtain information to
do reports.
- It possible to work in the control of IAS with the platform and the same time with different managers, and to share the information or the results. This is very useful to cooperation and coordination between Member States. With the users is possible to determinate which information is possible to see by another managers and which information is private.

The EU is already supporting EEIKO. This project has received funding from the European Union´s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement Nº 743453.

The company is looking for a company, related environment or environmental and natural environment consulting assessment or with customers with problems with alien species or companies that are dedicated to the management of the territory, so that they develop a pilot test with some of their customers, either public or private. It would be available EEIKO tool for a year for free if the company would get HORIZON 2020 instrument´s (Phase 2) grant.

Advantages and Innovations:

· You can register new IAS locations from your smartphone and upload their photo (public participation)
· Specialists verify your locations (expert verification)
· These locations can be visualised on a map (surveillance system)
· With this tool you can design and manage eradication actions to control IAS (effective measures)
· It is possible to monitor the effectiveness of these actions including their costs (management measures)
· All new and historic data is immediately available for reports and inquiries (reports and results)
