Cluey

Cluey is an Android app designed to increase situational awareness and improve coordination among rangers and other fast-responders in large nature reserves.

With the Cluey app you can (see detailed list of functions below):

  • view your own position and those of your fellow-responders on the map
  • alerts of field sensors are shown on the map in real-time
  • members can also create manual alerts
  • fast-responders can chat among themselves to discuss the best way of action

Information among fast responders is shared within a project group. The information is restricted to project members only. One can only become a project member upon invitation by the project owner. All data is stored in the highly secure backend, powered by MarkLogic-technologies, BIT, and Sensing Clues.
