A butterfly monitoring app for transect counters.
Version: 3.2.8
Added: 04-08-2016
Updated: 01-09-2021
TransektCount serves transect counters on their inspection walks. It supports species-specific counting of butterflies per transect section according to the European Butterfly Monitoring Scheme method.

- Data recording is organized according to a single transect inspection with a database instance per inspection.
- Databases can be individually created and adapted within the app regarding meta data, transect sections and expected butterfly species.
- You may use an individual species list per transect section.
- It contains a prepared basic database with most of the expected species as a starting point.
- Editor for the transect sections to setup or adapt its species
- Add new species to the list by scroll-down-selection from a comprehensive internal species list.
- Editor for meta data to prepare an inspection
- Editor for species remark or bulk count entry
- Counting page with scroll menu to select species
- Count input per internal/external counting area and here each with separate counters for ♂ or ♀, ♂, ♀, pupa, larva or egg.
- Results are prepared for easy readout to transfer them to science4you entry masks.
- Results are shown with meta data, remarks, totals and species results per transect section.
- Results may also be exported in SQLite- or CSV-format and transferred to a PC for your own processing, e.g. by importing a csv-file into a spreadsheet like MS Excel.
- Help contains a detailed userguide.

The app demands for
- storage access permit which is needed for im-/exporting the counting data,
- the permit to write settings for setting the screen brightness,
- the permit to prevent the phone from sleeping (to control the counting screen when used under Android 5.0.1 or newer).
The smartphone screen should have a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1024 pixels.
The app is usable with Android version 4.4 (KitKat) or newer.

Documentation is provided under

TransektCount is one of two apps for European butterfly monitoring.
The 2nd app, TourCount, supports species-specific and individually GPS-localized counting of butterflies on any tour in nature.

Both apps use the coding scheme of Karsholt/Razowski for European butterflies and thus contain only European butterfly pictures.
