The Citizen Science application "Roadkill" allows you to add roadkill sightings to the database of the Project by the University of natural resources and life sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria. The Project Roadkill is powered by SPOTTERON, a system for citizen science applications on smartphones.
By reporting roadkills you are helping by providing streamlined data for the scientific analysis of the current situation regarding the topic. With your entries, the science team then can identify hotspots at which roadkill occur regulary and adress those issues by e.g. building tunnels for migrating toads and frogs, or construct wildlife bridges over roads in cooperation with NGOs and local authorities.
Roadkill | SPOTTERON utilizes OpenStreetMap and is designed for modern smartphones. You can register your own SPOTTERON User within the app and start adding spots to the database.

Ratings and Reviews
Hello, I’m Roni. I’m a vulture culture and dead animal enthusiast. Though I’m not using this app to find and collect roadkill yet, I’m excited to do so when I’m allowed to. I already find it very exciting when I see dead things, but now I can tell the world every time and speak with like-minded people. I highly recommend this app, wether you love dead things or you just want to keep things from being dead, it’s a good time.
