Computer science ensures better data collection and data transfer. In particular, Louis Liebenberg, a South African scientist very interested in the tracking capacity of Bushmen in Kalahari, invented the Cybertracker, a palmtop computer associated with a GPS receiver. Liebenberg developed an efficient software to enable even non-literate users to gather large quantities of geo-referenced data for field observations.
Today, in collaboration with the UE Cybertracker Program, the Kudu program is adapting the computer program to the monitoring of sea turtles. In this poster, we present the use of the Cybertracker, the program specially developed for sea turtles, the advantages of the system and its great interest to the GIS and to the regional database of the Kudu program.
