How it works

The following steps can be distinguished:

 

① Farmers plant the trees; tree data incl. GPS is recorded with our TreeCorder app.

② Tree records and digital tools are easily accessible via our API based TreeManager.

③ Trees can be used for reward, engagement, loyalty and carbon offset programs.

④ Trees can be tracked with TreeTracker. You can even chat with the trees (NEW)!

 

Please find in below paragraphs an example and details on TreeCorder, TreeManager, TreeTracker and our API.

TreeTracker

Virtually travel to your trees and learn more

TreeTracker is a web application EcoMatcher has developed using satellite maps. TreeTracker shows the user the precise location of the tree adopted, the farmer who is taking care of it, and much more. Tree recipients can (social media) share the experience amplifying your tree gifting initiative.

 

EcoMatcher offers companies the possibility to integrate TreeTracker in their digital web domain.

  • Explore tree’s exact location
  • Learn all information about the trees
  • Know the person who take care of the trees
  • Ask anything to your bot-powered trees

TreeCorder

App for tree-planting organizations to register newly
planted trees and the planters planting the trees.

TreeCorder is an Android app for tree-planting organizations to register newly planted trees and the planters planting the trees.

 

The TreeCorder app makes it incredibly easy for tree-planting organizations to take photos of each tree once they are planted. The app e.g. automatically registers the GPS coordinates, the date of planting and assigns a unique number to the tree.

 

TreeCorder can work in an offline mode and can upload data to the cloud when the planters get back to a mobile network or Wi-Fi, even if those networks are poor and have low bandwidth.

  • Records all tree data in one go
  • Able to add farmer information
  • Synchronises all data to the cloud
  • Detects multiple pictures of one tree
  • Advanced built in object focussing
  • Can run on all type of Android phones

API

Our tree gifting API offers a flexible way to integrate giving and sharing trees with your customers in your own solutions. Through standardized REST requests new adopted trees can be reserved for your customers. Optionally we send them an email to inform them. Of course you can also choose to do this yourself using the tree identification details that the API returns.

 

EcoMatcher’s own systems use the same API. If you are interested to integrate your systems with EcoMatcher’s or would like to build your own custom solution, please contact us for API access credentials.
