Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre wanted to provide the public with a tool that would enable them to easily report sightings of cetaceans and sea turtles.

WhaleReport is a smart phone app developed for the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre featuring the ability to submit details of sightings of cetaceans and turtles in the British Colombia area, a map to view personal sighting reports and a detailed species identification guide.

Reports are enhanced with accurate GPS location details and photographic images of the sightings. Once submitted the report locations are verified via a server based GIS process to ensure that reports are within the target area.
