The Honeybee Mapper app is the first of its kind. This app collects, maps and displays Honeybee hive locations across the United States and around the world. By raising awareness of where honeybees are located, SaveTheHives hopes to aid in research efforts and encourage concerned citizens, students, beekeepers and farmers to be more bee friendly in their daily activities.
Vieing the Map displays pointers with a 3 mile radius ring indicating honeybee flight range, as well as user supplied hive information.
Various searching methods are supplied to view color coded hive locations of both wild and domesticated honeybees.
Honeybee quizzes and educational materials are provided to encourage bee stewardship and to promote increased awareness of honeybees.
Great idea, needs update
Great idea, especially to map feral hives. iOS 10, on iPad, crashing frequently when attempting to add new hive locations, and when trying to search for hives.
There is a sea of apps coming online everyday. Some are fun, some are serious, some are worthy of our time, money, and attention...and some are not. Honeybee Mapper was developed to help save bees, and contribute to a culture of stewardship for our environment. Did you realize that 1 out of 4 bites of food we eat depends on bees?! Scientists need to know where our bees are so we can work intelligently to keep their/our ecosystem healthy and make decisions about how to best deal with the CCD issue. Using "citizen eyes" to accumulate data on an innovative large map of where bee hives are located, Honeybee Mapper creates a way for all of us to work together to find and help bees. This app is a real and useable tool for science, schools, and anyone interested in bees. Honeybee Mapper is one of those apps that has a real and valuable purpose. Honeybee Mapper is an app that is worth it!
Clean and Simple
Great app for a niche market. The interface is simple and intuitive and the app itself is well thought out. I love the interactive map and quizzes. Definitely the best iPhone app for bee keepers or enthusiasts on the market! Keep it coming!
