A mobile app has been developed for countrywide count of tigers
For the first time, India will use an Android mobile application (M-STrIPES) for a countrywide tiger population estimation exercise.
Corbett Tiger Reserve and Rajaji Tiger Reserve will be the first to use this app and forest officials are being trained for the purpose.
The Monitoring System for Tigers Intensive Protection and Ecological Status (M-STrIPES) has been developed by the Wildlife Institute of India and will be used from mid-January this year.The app will help collect data, pictures and GPS coordinates.
