Coastal Walkabout App & Kimberley
The Coastal Walkabout app recently underwent initial testing in the Kimberley by MUCRU student Shona Wharton as part of a 10 day cruise along the Kimberley coast just a few weeks ago. The app that is scheduled for full release for Android and iPhone in November, was put thru its paces aboard the MV Odyssey for both whale and seabird observations. You can read more about it on the Murdoch University Cetacean Research Unit website here. I will be heading back to Perth in a few weeks to join MUCRU doctoral student Simon Allen for a week long BioBlitz at Shark Bay, a world heritage site 900 km North of Perth. We will be demonstrating the capability of the app in preparation for the CW Launch on Nov 28th in at Murdoch. Should be an exciting time.
