Project Description

We have developed a GDE Level I inventory app that will be beta tested in the field in 2020. We will use input from that testing to improve it. We have old inventories, in both paper and electronic from, that need to be entered into Springs Online. We are exploring innovative ways to efficiently transfer this data to avoid manual entry of individual surveys.
