Community Based Monitoring Program (Nunavut Wildlife Management Board)

Noreca Consulting works extensively in Nunavut to understand indigenous needs and provide technical solutions. In 2011, Noreca and Colibri Software developed a mobile app to record data collected in the field by hunters and trappers. Using Mesa, a rugged Windows phone by Juniper Systems, the application was written to support multiple languages, including English, Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun.The app tracks a hunter's trip by GPS positioning and records animal observations or specifics on any animals harvested. A data file for each trip is uploaded to a web server which records the state of this critical resource for remote communities of Nunavut. We participated in training in Nunavut in January 2012.
