    If someone is looking for an idea, here's one. This project to help researchers track bumble bees - a key and at risk link in our food chain. They are asking people to snap a pic, go to a website, upload & tag on the map. What they need is an app for that. Snap the pic, like Path or Foursquare it tags the location on the researchers maps. I'll bet their rate of inputed data will increase and get the data they need https://student.societyforscience.org/blog/eureka-lab/quick-picture-can-help-local-bumblebees
