Grasslander is a convenient web map platform that is designed to be accessible to you. The platform is optimized for computer, tablet, or smart phone; even if you’re in the field, you can access the Grasslander web map on your mobile devices.
Grasslander will allow you to map your farm and fields accurately on satellite imagery. After you’ve mapped your fields, you will be asked to include the corresponding field management practices. From there, you can record your Bobolink observations for each field.
Worried about logging your information into a collective sightings database? Don’t be! All the information collected through Grasslander is secure and only you will be able to see your own farm, field management practices, and bird sightings. Grasslander data will be shared publicly, however, in order to protect the privacy of Grasslander participants, the data will be appropriately aggregated (grouped) and only you will be able to see your individual information.
