SMART Connect

SMART Connect is an add-on online operating environment for SMART. It leverages real-time connectivity to greatly enhance speed of data transfer from the field, sharing of SMART data, maps and reports at regional and national level, and the possibility of integration with a wide variety of other mapping, analytical, and data collection platforms. It has the power to transform your use of SMART from a tactical tool to a full-blown operational response platform for protected area management.

Connect users can upload entire Conservation Areas complete with patrols, field data, queries, reports, and all other associated data. A distributed workforce can all work on the same Conservation Area and sync their changes on the server ensuring that all users are working with the most up-to-date version.
