Our team, TidePool, is developing a native android app that will help Pacific Northwest beach-goers quickly identify organisms that they find on the beach. We will ask questions about easily discernible traits, such as organism pigmentation and habitat, which will narrow down a list of possible organism matches so that the user may identify the species they see.
TidePool is a 2016 Youth Apps Challenge Finalist in the Technical Category, awards ceremony and final presentations on June 4th!!
