MERMAID – a Marine Ecological Research Management AID – aggregates and manages data from underwater coral reef surveys empowering scientists, communities, and governments in linking science to rapid action in marine conservation efforts.
For the first time, MERMAID catalyzes a digital revolution of coral reef data in an open-source platform. MERMAID is a modern web-based application that collects and manages real-time data on coral reef health, developed in partnership between WCS, WWF, and Sparkgeo.
Instead of entering data into Excel spreadsheets (a process can take hours, days and sometimes months to complete), MERMAID helps coral reef scientists input their observations straight onto an online/offline web platform.
MERMAID does the job of data in, clean data out – transforming underwater insights into evidence-based actions that save coral reefs.
