Early Development

Lensmark is a photo-monitoring plugin for WordPress, where data is collected by citizen(-scientists).

How it works

1. Scan

People passing by a photopost scan the QR code.

2. Shoot

They authorise the browser of their smartphone to access the camera, place the device on the mount and take a photo.

3. Send

The photo taken is transferred to a form field, which can then be submitted to the website.

This plugin was developed as part of a bachelor thesis at Bern University of Applied Sciences.

Commissioned by the Förderverein Region Gantrisch, a student at Bern University of Applied Sciences developed this plugin as part of his bachelor thesis. The plugin allows to turn a WordPress website into a photo-monitoring platform, where data collection is done by volunteers.
