Collaborate with science and at the same time benefit citizens by sending your sightings. Medusapp will inform you as soon as you run the app if within a radius of 5 km. Around you there have been sightings in recent days.

Obtaining information about sightings and stings of jellyfish, is crucial for the various scientific research works and have a small tool, that anyone can have installed on their mobile phone and that simplifies the task of reporting where jellyfish or jellyfish are located its effects on people is just what was needed to provide data to science.

Just take the photo to the jellyfish with Medusapp, and when you send it you will also be sending GPS coordinates to make a real-time map of the places where these marine animals are sighted. If you also know the species, better. But if not, do not worry, scientists will already be responsible for classifying it.

With this application you can also report other types of sightings of marine eventualities, as well as the effects of their bites.

In addition, it includes a guide of small aid in case of sting, and another of recognition of different species of jellyfish.
