After the award-winning apps iFOVEA for photo-optical wood measurement and Käferkunde the FOVEA UG published with Waldinvent another app for smartphones that help by valueyng the basal area of forest per hectare.

The app is using a live image, so that handling in a few steps is intuitive. The results are visible within a few seconds.

Käferkunde is an app that allows to learn, look up, determine or show beetles.

Worldwide there are over 350,000 different species of beetle. While we hardly notice them, must forester, for example, can assign a lot of them properly. Käferkunde may facilitate their learning and save their time for creating index cards. The app awakens joy of learning – no matter where you happen to be.

With the Käferkunde app beetles can be learned and looked up quickly and easily. It includes also a filter function based on their characteristics (size, color etc.) with which the beetles can easily determined. On an integrated interactive map all users can enter their sightings beetles per photo function and GPS, and thus show others, which beetles they were able to correctly allocate.

The design of Käferkunde was awarded with the Red Dot Junior Award in 2013.
