Käferkunde / Learn, find and show beetles.


Worldwide there are more than 350,000 different species of beetles. Many of them have to be correctly identified by foresters. “Käferkunde” (the study of beetles) is a very appealing and attractively designed app which allows users to learn about beetles, look them up and identify them via filter function using characteristics such as size and color. Users can enter the beetles they encounter via photo function and GPS into an integrated interactive map and thus show others which beetles they have already identified correctly.
