AshTag

AshTag


AshTag, initially launched in a storm of media coverage in October 2012, is an app to help scientists understand how the ash dieback disease spreads and identify potentially resistant trees. The project is being led by the University of East Anglia's Adapt Low Carbon Group.

With this app, you can help us AshTag the UK's ash trees! We've also produced a smart, fully recyclable tagging pack (purchased via this app) that will enable you to physically tag any ash tree, diseased or otherwise, with a numbered aluminium AshTag and then geo-tag it to become the 'steward' of that tree.

You can track the progress of your trees over time as you and others submit photos of them. You can also use the live map of all tagged trees to go 'AshTag hunting', and see how many tagged trees you can find and photograph.

The photo gallery that users will create for each tagged ash tree will help scientists to identify how the disease progresses and, crucially, the characteristics of trees which don't get the disease and appear to be less susceptible.

Have fun AshTagging!

New version fails to fit to screen Using a Samsung galaxy S2 and the updated app does not correctly size to fit on the screen. Using the identification guide half the text and pictures are off one edge of the screen and can't be seen. I can't scroll either to see the part that is off screen. Fix this and it would be four or five stars but currently not much use.

:-) Shame this app is necessary. But a few more pics would be great too.

Good idea. I'm getting 'invalid email address' even before I've entered anything. Nice idea though.
