Land Use Survey App

The Land Use Survey App enables the capture of ‘citizen science data’ from project partners, industry experts and citizens in a reliable and easy-to-use application from smart-devices.

It requires an internet connection and uses the devices’ GPS receiver to capture location. Users input the land use observation and have the option to capture a photograph or attach an existing image. This information is then uploaded to the cloud as a publically available service.

The spatial data submitted informs land use mapping at the desktop, especially useful for classifying land use at commodity level.

The app was originally developed to map avocado, macadamia and mango orchards for the Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA) mapping project – Multi scale monitoring tools for managing Australian tree crops: Industry meets innovation. It was funded through the Rural Research and Development for Profit program. General land use and commodity observations can still be submitted using the app and continue to inform land use mapping in Queensland.
