Date: 2007-10-24

Latest BIG FIVE Sightings

These maps are generated by Kruger Rangers while on patrol. The Rangers make use of Cyber Trackers to record information about the animals they see. The maps do not account for all sightings of these animals both by staff and visiting public as this is not captured and would be too numerous to plot. It does however give an indication of distribution based on the constant field presence of rangers.

The CyberTracker (CT) System was developed for application in conservation by Louis Liebenberg, as a user-friendly interface developed for PDA's. The system allows literate as well as non-literate field workers to record customised observations with latitude and longitude co-ordinates.
