This application framework will provide Caltrans staff and partners the ability to easily collect information on roadsidefeatures and document their findings in a web-based database which can be shared within Caltrans, as well as externally.The “one-click” application allows for users to simply point at a roadside feature, snap a photo, and this information willautomatically be sent to the image server for processing. Additional annotation can be added (such as an animal species),which will provide the necessary verification steps for a complete and permanent record. These data are a critical first stepto mitigating impacts to drivers and animals from collisions.
