SMC Synergy delivers the upgraded Bush Expert Information Management System
SMC Synergy was contracted by the North West University (funding from the Department of Environmental Affairs, Forestry and Fisheries) to upgrade the first version of the Bush Expert Information Management System (BEIMS). BEIMS is a cloud-based, easily accessible online information management system which provides access to the Bushmon and EcoRestore databases. Bushmon contains information on current research restoration projects while EcoRestore is a Bush Encroachment Restoration Decision Support System containing expert advice on the control of bush thickening. The location of research as well as restoration projects can be viewed in the Map Interface developed with Leaflet - an open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps.
